How do you see the evolution of the newspaper in the next five years?
I see news organizations focusing more on online content and creating more interactive features. More websites will likely require a pay wall. But, I do think (and hope) there will still be newspapers printed.
Five reasons you love your school:
1. The location: Living in downtown Boston right across from the Boston Common is a truly unique experience.
2. The students: I have met some of the quirkiest, funniest and most interesting people at Emerson.
3. The professors: It is great to learn from people as experienced and talented as the staff here.
4. The study abroad opportunities: I spent the fall semester living in a 14th-century castle in the Netherlands. Enough said.
5. The Berkeley Beacon: I’ve learned so much about journalism and reporting by working on our student-run paper.

What is the most interesting article you’ve ever written?
After the bombing of the Boston Marathon I worked on an article focusing on student response on Emerson’s campus. Since we are located on the same block as the attack, it was hard to remove myself from the emotions of the event and get into the reporting mindset. And on top of that I was competing with Boston Globe, New York Times and CNN reporters for interviews at the events I covered.
But, after I finished my piece I was proud of the work I had done and found the process therapeutic.
