As a student majoring in journalism, some make the mistake of assuming that all I know about reporting and stories has been taught to me in the classroom. My work on this site is yet another example of my efforts to prove that stereotype wrong. As I prepare to graduate from the University of Utah with a degree in journalism and a minor in Middle Eastern studies, I’m proud of the wide spectrum of stories I’ve had the opportunity to cover. From election riots on the streets of Cairo to discovering the LGBT community of Salt Lake City, each article exemplifies the aspects of journalistic excellence taught to me in the classroom, but more importantly, gained through experience.
