Nicole Sganga, a journalism student, is accompanying Nicholas Kristof on his annual win-a-trip journey in Burma. She has recently posted the first of several blogs from the field. It’s a very good piece, we encourage you to read it.
Nicole was an enthusiastic participant in SBU’s Robert W. Greene Summer Institute for High School Journalists a few years ago. The students who attend live at the university and work in the School of Journalism’s multimedia newsroom under the instruction of professional journalists. They learn basic skills in news reporting, writing, editing and using video. As a culminating activity, students produce original work across several media platforms.
Judging by her first blog, Nicole has a great career ahead of her.
