To me, this program was a review of what I have already learned. We worked in groups to create stories, which is something that I have done before. I didn’t really learn anything that I didn’t know before. I think the program was good review, personally, because I may decide to do journalism and communications in college. It was a good reinforcer of what I had done before.
My advice to future Real Chi Youth reporters is to be patient! It gets slow sometimes. I had a day where we had no replies for our stories and it made it really boring and hard to get things done but there is always something else to work on. I would not recommend Westinghouse students who graduated do this program just because it’s a big review and can get boring.
