Day 5 – Finished strong at Greene!!


Last day at Greene! It’s scary how fast the week went by. All I can say is this was a great program and I loved every second of it. We started the day off with a pep talk from a former Greene student, Yaw Bonsu, who gave us tips on making own opportunities and self-enterprising. We then had time to talk with our teams to start to finish up the projects. Speaking of which, I’m excited to finally get them up on the website and see what my classmates have been up to! A talk from Stony Brook University’s Associate Dean of Admissions Robert Pertusati followed. He spoke about searching for college and the application process. Although I’m only going into Sophomore year, it was definitely insightful. The last talk of the day was from members of the Press Club of Long Island, some of which mentored us. The rest of the day was spent finishing up the assignments. I completed my video on the opioid crisis. Overall, I’m going to miss this program but I’m excited to apply what I have learned to my school’s newspaper! I can’t wait to meet everybody in person and see the newsroom tomorrow!
