Robert S. Goodfriend Summer Internship Fund Recipient
Although I was offered a position as an intern, I worked as a full fledge producer during my entire stay in New Delhi. By the end of the first week I was given the chance to solo direct an editing session. That may not sound like much, but editing a news package that could be broadcasted to more than 100 million around the world is a pretty important aspect of the news gathering process. And from there, the responsibilities only increased.
Before ending my fellowship, I was traveling to and conducting interviews without any assistance, except from the translator of course. I also completed more administrative tasks like ironing out the travel logistics for the correspondent’s business trips outside of New Delhi.
