SPJ DePaul

 

I helped found a student chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists during my undergraduate studies at DePaul and served as an executive board member during my junior and senior years. I lead membership and event coordination and helped develop the organization into the second largest Region 5 student chapter–with 50+ paid members–within six months of establishment.

 

SPJ DePaul received the 2010-2011 SPJ National Student Chapter of the Year award, the SPJ Region 5 Student Chapter of the Year award, and the DePaul University Most Outstanding Student Organization award.

As events coordinator I helped organize events such as a Chicago music journalism  panel, attended by over 70 students and professionals, and “Who’s News?”–a panel discussion of diversity in Chicago newsrooms.
