The Miami Student

Oxford (OH), United States
March 2019 - June 2019


The Miami Student is based out of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Established in 1826, the paper is considered the oldest university newspaper in the United States.

My Role

I was a staff writer for the Culture column for a few months at the university newspaper during my freshman year. I had decided to join such an organization because at the time, I struggled with conciseness in my writing. What better way to improve on this than to write for a newspaper, plus, have all your writings proofread my some of the most strict and talented journalists.


My short-lived career as a journalist was eye-opening, to say the least. I’m a much better writer because of this experience, although I struggle sometimes to talk coherently like a normal human being, so my interviewing skill is still pretty meh.
