NLGJA Members

The NLGJA is an extraordinarily helpful organization for students to get involved in. I returned for a second time to the NLGJA student project where I continued to push myself to go beyond my comfort zone as a journalist into unfamiliar multimedia fields with the guidance of talented professionals. I hope to go back for the UNITY conference this summer. You build great connections with professionals in the field and other students, whom I’ve been reaching out to during my job hunt process.
