My time as an intern at Buffalo Rising was a great experience and learning opportunity. I learned how to work with an excellent team of editors and photographers to make the best articles possible. Learning how to find leads for stories and reach out to photographers for story assets was an interesting process.
I’m glad I got to learn from the editors at Buffalo Rising about the importance of hyperlocal journalism. Hearing about how stories about the community helps local citizens know about what’s happening in their town and/or city was amazing.
