Live from camp: An interesting interview experience

A week and two days through ThreeSixty Journalism, it’s been a tense but mostly fun experience. My group members are Franny (my partner) and Charlie (my mentor).

Live from camp: Feeling melancholy as the end of camp approaches

I was standing in line today, waiting for a garden burger when it hit me – we have two more nights here and then barely two more days. A wave of melancholy overcame me. Two days?! Really?!


Live from camp: Grateful to be here

At least once a day, I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude that I am here. That’s not to say every moment has been bliss—there are challenges, without a doubt.

Live from camp: Exercising more, exploring town and reporting my story

Today, I woke up to a cheery version of “Magic” by Selena Gomez. It was enchanting and gave me a lively boost not unlike my Mango-A-Go-Go smoothie I got this morning. Belinda and I actually woke up at 6:00 a.m. for a stimulating hour-and-a-half trek to the glorious Jamba Juice.

After yesterday’s seminar conducted by Cara McNulty, the Statewide Health Improvement Program manager, we were convinced to take on the challenge of thirty minutes of exercise per day.

Live from camp: Interviews, newspapers and Mafia

I’ve done interviews before, but none were quite as difficult as the one I did yesterday with Gloria Ferguson at a school-based clinic here in St. Paul.

Cheese and rice, it’s been a long two days. Not that anyone says it hasn’t been a fun long two days.
