Michelle Shi interns with China's Xinhua News Agency

Journalism and Digital Media senior Michelle Shi returned home to China this summer and landed an internship with the Xinhua News Agency's Yunnan branch. Michelle worked as an assistant editor for the rapidly growing online division. She started researching local stories of interest and provided them to her supervisor. The chief editor was so impressed with Michelle's work that the opportunity to write and edit articles for the site was presented to her. Michelle crafted numerous articles during the remainder of her internship. She felt that the experience was invaluable and it would help her as a staff writer for The Collegian. Her goal is to work professionally as a journalist and someday return to China, as JDM's next international storyteller.
