During the fall of 2016 I was the metro desk intern at the Chicago Sun-Times, one of Chicago’s largest daily newspapers. Needless to say, I learned a lot from my three months in this fast-paced and demanding internship. I was given the opportunity to cover breaking news and feature stories, as well as pitch several articles for publication.
Here are just a few of the articles I pitched and had published:
- Illinois women plan D.C. trips to oppose — or support — Trump
- Who you gonna call? Chicago ghost hunters’ favorite locations
- Tears, cheers: Cubs fans young and old ready for World Series run
- A 97-year-old Pearl Harbor veteran is having a ‘big year’
