As a student writer, I have come across many websites promoting college writers and their skills as journalists. However, thesop.org is one website I have always been impressed with. I was introduced to the website last year in my journalism class, and have been interested ever since. After seeing the post on journalismjobs.com, I decided to write and see if I could become a part of The Student Operated Press.
I knew long ago that I wanted to be a journalist. Growing up in Burlington, Vermont, a city that has grown considerably in recent years, has given me a general curiosity to all things lifestyle and entertainment. After doing an internship at the Gannett newspaper in my hometown, The Burlington Free Press, I knew that journalism was a good fit. As a journalism major and writing minor at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY, I feel like I get a lot of hands-on experience at school - but I am always looking for more. Working for The Student Operated Press would benefit me with experience that I wouldn't be able to get at other mediums.
