Paper comes out tomorrow!
I’ve been so busy, and I’m starting to feel the cons of it, such as feeling run down and stretched out. I applied for a new part-time job at a grocery store because the hours are better for me. I would be able to work after my internship for a few hours, giving me a […]
I’ll have another article in the printed edition of the Long Island Press, but here’s one that I covered today. The new Barclays Center in Brooklyn is sure to attract a lot of Long Islanders to its concerts and events. The Long Island Railroad is adding more trains to the Atlantic Avenue terminal. Check […]
Why I love journalism.
Today I was assigned to cover the court sentencing in the next county over. I was excited to go because a) It’s over an hour drive and I’ve never driven that far. B) This was a pretty big/interesting case. Now, I can’t really say I’ve covered a court case. I’ve tried. I tried my last […]
It’s pretty much summed up in this one article called Obama’s Way by Michael Lewis for Vanity Fair. Read it. Read it if you’re Republican. Read it if you’re Independent. Read it if you’re Democrat.

You can read the article here. I’m very proud to have worked on this and to have learned […]
My coverage of the Long Island Taxis on Patrol program is up! Check it out right here, and let me know what you think!

It was a county press conference unveiling the new taxi on patrol extension to the neighborhood watch program. Even the major news networks were there. I was so nervous but I didn’t want to come off as someone […]
It’s my birthday!
I just got back from my school late last night. I left Tuesday afternoon to go up, went out a bit with friends to celebrate my birthday, ran some errands on Wednesday morning, got lunch with my cousin, went to my internship seminar class, hung out with some friends, and then left for the two-hour […]
I’m finally 21! This is good news because now I can attend certain social gatherings and network. I remember at my internship last year my co-workers kept forgetting that I wasn’t of age and would always invite me out for drinks after work. Now I can go. So excited for these new opportunities.
