Starting out strong


Starting on Sunday night, I was feeling an abundance of emotions. Excited, happy, and a little nervous. I was not sure what to expect, but moments after tuning into the Zoom call I knew I would be having a great time during Greene week.

We started off by making sure our profiles were done. Mine was completed. When reflecting upon my work with the profile, I was really proud of myself. I started off with a piece that I felt was solid. However, through the editing process my piece became even better. Through the edits of my profile I was left with not just a better piece of writing, but with better editing and writing skills that I can integrate into future writing.

Monday, the first official day of Greene week, was pretty action-packed.  Although there were many elements of this day, my favorite part of the day was setting up our recording materials. Recording and broadcast journalism is the part of the field that I am not extremely familiar with. I gained much knowledge of some equipment that I will be using throughout this week to conduct interviews. This will allow me to gain more experience that I wouldn’t normally have access to.

 I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the week!
