While working with the MetroWest Daily News under the Boston University Statehouse Program, I covered a variety of local events in the MetroWest Massachusetts area as well as the state legislature.
I wrote approximately two to three stories a week from mid-September to late-December, and focused my final project on the opioid epidemic in Massachusetts state. During my tenure, I also extensively covered one of the ballot items in the 2016 state election, as well as the initial reactions from the election of Donald Trump. In some of my articles, I also provided my own photos as well as tweets on social media for secondary coverage.
This was the first of many steps I took towards being a true member of the communication industry.
