Emily Nasche Fall 2018 J1 Student

I took this class because I wanted to get more into the media aspect of news and reporting, I learned proper techniques for interviewing and how to capture pictures that go along with the story I am creating. I also learned lots of ways to design and create using indesign which can help me in the future if I ever decide to go into journalism or any media outlet job.

I plan to join Yearbook after this year to utilize my skills and create more stories because I love getting to create stories that can influence others.

I loved this class and how it was setup, it was thoroughly described on what was needed and the assignments were actually fun and got you to think. If I could change anything in this class it would be to do more photo capturing stories, we didn't get to that till the end of the semester and I wish we could've gotten to it sooner.

I liked this assignment because it allowed us to put all the aspects of journalism into one project and designing a page was really cool.


this assignment was all about creating our own infographics to go along with information we had gathered. Overall it was a very fun but tedious project.
