Headed to New York City

I am so excited for February to end because from March 9 to 14, I will be in New York City for a journalism convention. The College Media Association Spring National College Media Convention 2017 has over 250 sessions and activities that will help mold me into a better journalist.

From here, I hope to acquire useful information and experiences that I can apply to Flyer News. My co-workers who went to the convention the year before said they had an amazing time. Plus, they met people in the industry that offered them the opportunity for internships.

While I'm there I plan to attend their American Copy Editors Society Student Media Bootcamp and their Google News Lab: Tools Training for Journalists. Learning to quickly spot errors and mistakes in pieces, along with understanding how to crunch numbers will become significantly important in my future occupation.

Plus, while I'm there I plan to make a surprise visit to my mother's. I'm sure they'll be stoked to see me.
