I have returned to Chicago, leaving Washington DC behind and what was to me the most realistic glimpse you can have of a newsroom while still being a student.
I am approaching the finish line and will graduate next month. But between now and then I have a lot of work to do and most of it I am looking forward to.
News21, of which I am a part, is coming to a conclusion — and my story is certainly due.
I am working on a multimedia final project, which I am very excited about. I will finally get to try out some of the skills I learned in the classroom.
Plus I continue to find stories on the Irish-American community here in Chicago.
I am not long home from a lengthy day of earnings reports and slot-person duty and so I sign off.
