Hey future friends! Here’s a little snippet of who I am. But what I really want to know is: Who are you? So give me your name and I’ll give you a question, or 20. Sorry, I can’t help myself.
I’m curious, I’m creative and I’m always caffeinated. I’m a Capricorn. I like alliteration. I’m a dreamer and a doer and always a positive thinker. I’m a journalist…in the making. Who I was yesterday and whoever I’ll be tomorrow will probably differ. But there’s one thing I can promise you will never change; I’m always Aly.As a junior Journalism major at Creighton University, I am working to gain the knowledge and experience to be a successful journalist in this ever-changing career field. I’m currently the Editor-in-Chief of the campus newspaper, The Creightonian. With this position and previous jobs, I am experienced in news writing, social media interviewing.
I am proud of the small Iowa town I grew up in, and I would do almost anything for any of its 102 residents. My seven siblings are my best friends, role models and counselors.
I believe silence often speaks louder than words. However, like anything, there are exceptions. Everyone has a voice and everyone deserves to be heard. I don’t only want to hear your story, I want to make sure everyone else hears it too. So speak up, and I’ll help you speak out.
On this site you will find examples of my work for the online Creightonian from the spring of 2015.
