This week has been intense, anxiety-inducing and fulfilling.
To see it come to a close has brought mixed emotions of sadness and accomplishment. With the circulating circumstances of COVID-19, I wasn’t sure how this project would come together with it being the first virtual project. But that is exactly what made it that much more special to me. Being around the amount of talent that helped me through this process was such an amazing opportunity, and I will be forever grateful for it. I gained a network and family I’ve been searching for.
I would have never imagined the amount of work I achieved without the help of my mentor, Carrie Jung, and the many others in the program. This is just the beginning of a new normal for journalism, and I am excited to see the program continue to grow, knowing that I and the other mentees were a part of something extraordinary.
