This is a blog dedicated to showing you the story behind the story—anecdotes about the stories I covered that made me a stronger journalist.
My Day at the CIA
I was able to have the unique opportunity to serve as a production assistant to the television show "Museum Access" this summer. During this episode, I spent the day at the C.I.A. headquarters in Langley Viriginia learning about the CIA museum and its stories.
This story about CAFOs took a lot of research, convincing, late nights and sacrifices of our clothes to the horrifying (and ever-lasting) smell of hog feces. Creating this team story for my intro to convergence reporting class (4804) was an adventure to say the least.
This is the most personal story I have ever written online; OCD and anxiety is something I have been struggling with for years now. Although mental health can be isolating, however, the number of people who reached out to me after writing this article was overwhelming.
