More often than not, it take more than just photos, words or audio recordings to tell a good story these days.

Those are times when it's  great to be reporting the news for that internet audience.

The Throwback Thursday blog


"Throwback Thursday" reframed older content in a way relevant to students' lives in present time. The throwbacks revealed culture clashes and hidden histories of minority communities. Each weekly post brought to light stories of a Confederate legacy, African-American women expressing themselves through the stage, LGBT students in hiding or daring to take a stand, and a disabled alumnus who created both a more accessible campus along with a wheelchair basketball team that would become the school's most recognized sports team.


One blog post well-received by readers was an article on the rise of Vietnamese gangs alongside increasing Asian American enrollment (accessible here).

Student poet finds inspiration in her past, future


This was a collaborative effort with the reporter who found and wrote text for the story. Using his words and my multimedia elements, we created a centerpiece article for a special section for university graduation.


During the reporting process I took photos and recorded audio. Online, I worked from the wall of text and added sounds and visuals in places that best complemented the flow and information of the story.


The end result was a rich reading experience. The article can be read here.
