My name is Lauren Concon and I am a journalism student at Skyline College in San Bruno, California. I am a full time student with a very demanding part time job. Juggling these aspects of my life has been complicated but over time and with more experience I have found it to become completely manageable. I will be receiving my AA degree in the Fall of 2012 in Journalism. After countless general education classes I have finally found that journalism is something that I truly enjoy doing and what I would like to do for the rest of my life.
This semester I have been working for The Skyline View student newspaper as the Features Editor and I will continue to be on staff next semester. I have attained a number of skills from being on staff including using Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, editing page layout, as well as editing, writing and assigning a wide range of stories.
In the future I will continue working as a journalist and expand my skills and and gain more experience in my field.
