I have been hearing about the News21 program since my first month at Elon University. It is a national multimedia reporting initiative headquartered in Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. I'm thrilled to announce that I have been accepted as a Summer 2019 Carnegie-Knight News21 Fellow. This year's investigation will focus on federal disaster relief.
News21 is one of the most prestigious student journalism internships in the country and was established by the Carnegie Corporation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to provide a platform for college students to produce in-depth multimedia projects on a national scale. I've been dreaming about being a News21 fellow since my freshman year — I can't wait for the summer to begin.
