While this portfolio focuses on my work on The Shield staff, this category offers an opportunity to highlight my growth by showing where my love of journalism began — the KBTV broadcast news staff at my middle school. After attending the Gloria Shields NSPA Media Workshop as an incoming sixth grader in beginning broadcast from Jim McCarthy, I decided to join KBTV staff which served as my foundation in journalism. Although it was only middle school, KBTV allowed me to gain experience on screen, behind the camera and as a leader, which was part of the natural evolution into my various roles in MacJ. This short reel showcases the roles I held on the staff — from reporter to anchor to station manager, featuring some of my first on-camera work, my videography and editing of our program intro and a sports broadcast package.
