My Spring Internship at D.C. Witness

My time as an intern at D.C. Witness taught me valuable skills about both journalism and the legal system.

I got the opportunity to experience real-life homicide hearings, and subsequently learned how to properly report on such controversial topics.

I developed the ability to pre-write, multitask, research, and to pick up and take notes on only the most vital and relevant information.

While I was never set on a career in journalism, the opportunity to see the intersection between two career paths that I have considered for myself was one that I will never forget and that I will continue to explore.
