Today began with news over breakfast, the usual. After that, we headed to the newsroom to converse about stories released in the morning news. These included the emoji artist, the Melville drowning and the closing of a local diner. In addition, we discussed our progress on the Ducks and on-campus packages.
One of the highlights of today was the press conference with Janelle Atkinson, former Olympian from Jamaica and swim coach at Stony Brook University. Although I was not on that story, it was interesting to listen to her speak about her life and career. I even took notes! I was intrigued because I am a swimmer too.
Next I worked with a photo editor who visited the Greene Team. We used Adobe Photo Shop to edit my pictures of Ben. Later, we worked on editing our articles with a Penn State student and former member of the Greene Team. After lunch, my team and I met Tyler, a PhD candidate in math at Stony Brook University. We shot video and pictures as well as interviewed him for his opinion on the geometry regents. We ate dinner and afterward, I edited the pictures of Tyler. We are currently working on editing our videos for both packages. Tonight is crunch time because the Ducks packages are due. I love the experience of working as a journalist under crunch time!
