Hi everyone! My name is Julia and I am a senior at Canisius studying journalism and political science. I’m the editor-in-chief of The Griffin (I hope you all read it!) and am part of a bunch of other clubs and organizations on campus (this picture of me is from when I was an orientation leader).
I’m interning at Buffalo Rising which is an online magazine in Buffalo! Right now, my responsibilities are to report to my editor each week and to attend weekly Zoom meetings with other writers and the editors. I’m going to be writing pieces about restaurants around Buffalo, interviewing the owners to do a little series like “People Behind the Places.” I’m really looking forward to that taking off, and have already interviewed the owner of Guud & Evul Vegan Eats in North Tonawanda. He was super nice and gave me a ton of free food (journalism perks!). I can’t wait to continue on with this during the semester, and I hope everyone’s internships are going well!
It is great experience to get out into the community and I think it is wonderful that they have assigned you write articles about area restaurants. I look forward to reading your articles!
