BA '08, Communication

"To fulfill my writing requirement sophomore year, I found myself enrolled in an 8 a.m. introductory-level journalism course. It was one of my most challenging classes at GW, but it was indisputably the most rewarding. I ended up minoring in journalism and interning for news organizations including NPR and USA Today."
