Leadership and Team Building

Cultivated relationships with other HUB editors

 Note: I work with another editor-in-chief, Isabella, to ensure that all quality content is published and assist when she needs help i.e. finding photos, checking articles for AP style.

Example: I helped Isabella find the graphic for an article that was lost in the google drive on Dec. 17, 2016.

Note: I supervise the video program and communicate with the video editor, Roland, when I have ideas about how to improve our videos.

Example: I suggested requiring mandatory edits to videos before they could be posted. Roland agreed on Dec. 21, 2016.

Note: I collaborate with the two radio editors, Christine and Irem, on a regular basis to come up with podcast ideas and meet deadlines.

Example: I checked in with Christine about the monthly radio podcast and presented an idea for other smaller radio clips Journalism 1 students had produced on Feb. 11, 2017.

Example: I offered to gather content for one of the radio segments to show Irem that I want to have an active part in the radio podcast on Jan. 11, 2017.


“How to make a #MyGlobalStory”

Note: I worked for 13 weeks creating #MyGlobalStory videos for Global Student Square. I then created this workflow for other journalists to create own videos. I presented the workflow on Zoom, a video conferencing app, to students at the American School of Paris who were interested in participating in the project.

“How to make election preview videos”

Note: I created an election preview video and helped others make similar ones. Instead of teaching multiple students at once, I talked one-on-one with students, which allowed them to ask more questions. One of those students was Mohi Andrabi, a senior at Claremont High School, whose video is below.

“Diversity Audit/Interviews”

Note: I’m committed to making our website representative of the students at our high school. I collaborated with editors to examine our first semester coverage, and we came up short. To hold ourselves accountable, we printed an article detailing our shortcomings and made a plan with our reporters to do better in the future.

Note: One of our solutions was interviewing students that fit the underrepresented categories; my group ventured to auto shop. Below are three interviews we informally conducted on our phones with males who do not take AP/Honors classes. We used their answers to create story ideas for the next issue cycle.
