Austin American-Statesman

Breaking news reporter

May - August 2018 • Austin, TX

What I liked

I had the opportunity to see what it was like to be an actual breaking news reporter. They treated me like I was a member of the team, not an intern. I wrote 80 stories in 10 weeks.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have done more! Ten weeks was not long enough.


I would say make friends with everyone you meet and don’t be afraid to ask your idols in the workplace to coffee to pick their brains on how they got to be where they are in their careers.
