Political Unit Intern, summer 2021
At ABC, I reported on elections, campaigns, and polling for newsgathering efforts and ABC News' website. I also researched political issues, such as redistricting, for long-term projects at ABC News and FiveThirtyEight.
I've conducted some logging and research for This Week with George Stephanopoulos as well.
I reported mainly on Wisconsin's Congressional delegation, including through press events, House/Senate live stream coverage, and other reporting, in order to keep Wisconsinites informed. I also helped out with the paper's 2020 Elections coverage and other stories. My work has been featured in the Journal Sentinel and in other newspapers within the USA TODAY-Wisconsin network.

At the Inquirer, I reported for the news features desk, covering the people, places, and moments that make up Philadelphia and the broader region. While I covered a variety of topics, I also focused specifically on immigration activism and protests that erupted during that summer.

At the Jerusalem Post, I covered a wide range of topics--from protests in downtown Jerusalem to meetings in the Knesset (Israeli parliament) to light shows and museum exhibits. I interviewed in both English and Hebrew, the latter of which I have a working proficiency in; I spoke with CEOs, parliament members, professors, and wine sellers while reporting, among many others.
For The Chicago Maroon, the University of Chicago's independent student newspaper, I reported on campus innovations and controversies, city news, and profiled and interviewed newsmakers in the community. I also brok news about campus policy and supermarket openings!
I was the Maroon's beat reporter on the formerly UChicago-owned Yerkes Observatory.
As a news editor, I was one of the leaders of the news section, making sure our newspaper's coverage is top-notch by working closely with reporters, as well as helping with both content editing and social media management.

The Jewish Link newspapers are mostly hyperlocal and Jewish-community focused. I've written for both the Link's New Jersey and Bronx, Westchester, and Connecticut papers. My reporting for the Link includes some of my earliest professional clips, and helped me develop both an appreciation for community-centric news and hyperlocal reporting.
