Only a month (I think?!) left of my first semester of grad school and since my last post, a lot has happened. Let me give you a quick rundown:
-Been slacking on participating in class…not good
-Yesterday SPJ had our first student faculty mixer, and I met a journalism professor who used to live in Hawaii, in my hometown! Besides talking about Hawaii, he suggested I take his class so I can really learn how to write feature stories. I hope that I can since it’s a 300 level class…Anyway, he told me to show him pictures of my hometown if I can.-For the past two, three weeks my cohort and I have been getting ready for our global pop up about poverty happening THIS SATURDAY! My partner and I are going to the LA Regional Food Bank to interview volunteers and community members. PLEASE follow us @PopUpNewsroom, my Twitter @JenYamada (#livepoverty) for live tweets from me and my classmates, as well as from students in the UK, India, and Taiwan.
Okay, I guess that’s all that’s been happening haha, but still, it’s been crazy.
