State:  Illinois

College: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Major: News Editorial Journalism

Contact Information: foody.kathleen@gmail.com

I am currently a sophomore in the College of Communications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am majoring in News Editorial Journalism and have worked as a staff writer for the Daily Illini, the independent student newspaper here since I was a freshman. I have covered a local political affairs beat since March of 2006, including heavy involvement in planning of coverage of the November 2006 elections. Local politicians have come to know my voice and face as I covered their campaigns and have continued to follow their activities in the early months of their terms.

I have also written a variety of stories covering campus issues, including during the recent retirement of Chief Illiniwek, the symbol of the University.

I have also worked as a daytime assignment editor charged with running the newsroom during the day, updating our web site with breaking news and assigning reporters to cover events during the day. Ultimately, I would like to write for a daily paper in my hometown of Chicago, but I realize that I will need to develop my experience in smaller markets before that is possible.
