  • I learned every idea can be turned into an article!

  • I learned how to create media and use proper techniques and procedures.

  • I learned how to pump out an essay in a night.

  • I learned how to work in a group of people coherently.

  • I learned that a backup plan can always be implemented, even on elements that you may have not planned on going wrong.

  • I learned that everything and everyone has a story.

  • I learned that interviews are scary on both ends of the conversation.

  • I learned confidence is the key to making connections.

  • I learned that everyone has a story.

  • I learned how to interact with new people.

  • I learned that you might not like or get along with everyone you work with, but a team requires compassion and effort to work together.

  • Don’t be afraid to come out of your comfort zone.

  • I learned how to do interviews.

  • I learned that you may think you’re anti-social, but I promise you’re not.

  • I learned that in order to get good pictures, you need to move around. Never stay stagnant with sports photos!

  • I learned that being a part of a team can actually be really fun and that it’s okay to struggle and admit to it. Communication is absolutley the most important part of making a newspaper run smoothly, and everyone plays a big role, even if it seems small. I learned that authenticity is more important than peer approval.

  • Journalism taught me how to confidently ask questions and voice my opinions.

  • I learned how to communicate better and improve my work ethic.

  • I learned that your voice is important, and using your voice can help others who are too scared to speak up.

  • I learned how to work with people well and be an effective communicator.

  • One big thing I learned is how to be comfortable talking to people, and feeling confident when speaking with anyone. When going on an interview or to talk to someone about something, it’s always a good thing to know and plan out what you want to say. It helps things go smoother. It also can teach you how to stay respectful and appropriate when talking about a tough or bad situation.

  • I learned how impactful and beautiful teamwork is.

  • I learned that it is ok to ask for help, and you don’t always need to figure everything out on your own.
