As I prepare to graduate from The Ohio State University, I want to take time to reflect on one of the most important experiences I had as a student. As a Journalism major I was required to works as a reporter for Ohio State’s student newspaper The Lantern.
I can’t put into words what my time with The Lantern meant to me. Not only did I learn how to be a better writer, editor, and journalist but I also made connections with some of the best and brightest in the business.
I wrote this feature story while covering the Ohio State women’s basketball team. The return of Amy Scullion to the team had a lot of angles that I wanted to cover to show how unique the story was. I want to thank Gary Petit for the access as well as the players and coaches I spoke to.
