Reporting, writing and photography are in full swing here at the Spartan Daily Newsroom.
Everywhere I look, aspiring journalists are hustling to pursue exciting stories.
I, the latecomer, am feeling the pressure to keep up.
Thanks to an untimely bout of strep throat, I had to miss the first two days of Mosaic. I arrived this morning and was immediately swept up into the action – before I could even catch everyone’s names, I was off on my first assignment.
I witnessed the culmination of an inspiring YouthBuild project that installed energy efficient windows in apartments throughout the city of Milpitas. I interviewed a group of truly dedicated students and educators.
We headed back to the newsroom and I typed up my first draft.
My editor, Sharon Noguchi, is awesome. She’s very sweet and definitely seems like an expert on writing and reporting. I’m expecting to learn a lot from her over the next couple of weeks!
Everyone is friendly and helpful. The energy is contagious! I’m pretty sure I couldn’t find a cooler group of people to spend these two weeks with.
It will probably take me a little while to fall into step with everyone else here, but I can tell this is going to be an incredible learning experience.
Can’t wait to see what happens next!
