I'm a student at Ithaca College, studying in the Roy H. Park School of Communications and pursuing a degree in journalism with a minor in sociology. I work as the Proofreader for The Ithacan, the college's award-winning, student-run online and print newspaper. As a student, I've been exposed to various types of communications media, including social media, print and broadcast, but I have yet to decide on which form to pursue. Regardless, I believe news stories and journalists should revert to one of their original purposes: To be watchdogs working on the side of the public. To me, journalism is a way to bring about change and bring a voice to the voiceless.
