Storytelling. It is an art obtained through visual and oral presentations. By editing a video together with precision and context, one can become a storyteller that can communicate and grasp the attention of an audience. Working for the Daily Advocate/ Early Bird for two years, I’ve gained a voice needed to help others share their story. I have been able to become confident in my writing stye and become even more comfortable during the interviewing process. I have worked for WOUB News editing videos, writing stories, and reporting. I have developed editing, camera, leadership, interpersonal, and storytelling skills with the other organizations and businesses I have worked with as well.
