MY NAME IS CAROLINE
Nice to meet you.
My name is Caroline Watkins and I am a recent graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism. I majored in international convergence journalism and minored in art history. I also graduated with an honors and multicultural certificate.
I became passionate about storytelling at a young age. In high school, I worked with a local Washington D.C. photojournalist on assignments for Teen Vogue and worked as a freelance writer for my local newspaper. I also started my own photography business (note: some of the photos on this site still have the original watermarks).
At Mizzou, I took advantage of the variety of news outlets the School of Journalism provided, in addition to picking up additional freelance work for digital publications. As a convergence student specifically, I spent time rotating through a variety of local newsrooms, which allowed me to gain experience in broadcast, radio, news writing, social media, photography and more.
This past year, I've worked in two international newsrooms. Last spring, I lived in London and worked as a news assistant at CBS News. I was in the newsroom during the night of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire and provided research for events such as the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash and the birth of the royal baby. My hands-on experience at CBS brought me to CNN this past summer, where I worked with the Special Projects team at CNN International. There, I had a wide range of tasks, from creating digital content for various CNN platforms to creating vignettes which later aired on CNN International.
In my free time (which is a rarity), I enjoy traveling, playing my guitar or ukulele, listening to jazz and classic rock music, watching Youtube or going on long drives with my friends.
Thank you again for visiting my website. If you have any questions about my work or are interested in hiring me for freelancing opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact me.
