UI7 Live

When Coronavirus led to companies canceling and restructuring internships for college students, UI7 Live and Good Morning Illini in Champaign gave students a platform to grow their writing skills and gain digital reporter experience virtually. Six students worked to build this website from the ground up in preparation for the JOUR317 class that would begin to use it fall 2020.

As a digital news reporter, I strive to tell stories accurately and efficiently to benefit the community. Between reporting about local and campus news, UI7 has allowed me not only to develop and sharpen my writing skills but also to diversify my journalism background.
