As of August of this school year, I started interning for the Miami Herald Media Company. I’m still learning the ropes of how things work in a newsroom, but, essentially, I am a reporter! It’s almost like the real deal, except that I get high school credit rather than paychecks. But that’s totally fine with me, because interning for the Miami Herald is something I’ve wanted to do ever since I was a sophomore, a newbie in the journalism program at my school. So far it’s been great. I just turned in my first assignment with my fellow intern and colleague, both in school and out, Daniela Morales. Together we introduced ourselves to reporters and editors in the newsroom, and made sure to represent our school newspaper, the Harbinger!
