I hope to be a well-rounded mediamaker by the end of the summer. I want to be able to say I have some background in all sorts of media. I want to be a better director because I like that role. Though I prefer print journalism over the media aspect, I think it’s good to have a background in both, and I hope that by the end of the summer I can have a solid background working with the different media types. I want to explore the educational success stories of Chicago youth. I think that those aren’t seen as much in mainstream media because we are a city that has more trouble than success. If we focus on those troubles, however, we as youth are given a bad reputation. I want to help clear up that reputation, because in Chicago, we’re not all that bad: there are great examples of students and youth who have done great things for themselves and for their community.
