This is the first program that I have participated in which will allow me to use my degree. I graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington in May of 2019. While I was there I got the opportunity to study abroad in Kampala, Uganda and published a story at one of the biggest independent newspapers, reporting on people with disabilities and have HIV/AIDS. At IU I was the Chief Operating Officer of CultureU, an upcoming web-based platform whose mission is to report on student culture on campus. Finally, I was able to intern at a local multimedia station and produce various forms of content and stories formatted for the web, radio and TV.
