In the summer of 2016 I became a full-time reporting intern for the Moline Dispatch/ Rock Island Argus, a daily newspaper in Moline, Illinois. I worked 40 hours each week, for 12 weeks, and covered everything from fires to presidential candidates to local arts and culture. I was also expected to pitch stories for publication.
Here are some of the stories I reported on during my time there:
- Moline considers allowing backyard chickens
- Blood center looks to increase donations
- Coal Valley teen helps in Cambodia
