Mass Media

During the spring term of my sophomore year, I took a journalism class called “Writing for Mass Media.” We dabbled with a variety of news articles, wrote feature stories, press releases and quite often, we talked about social media. One thing all of us had to do was creating our own blog where we would talk about current events and issues. Since I already had one, I simply posted my entries here.
