Clips from my first week at the Washington Examiner


I’ve spent three fun, busy days with the Washington Examiner as a local news intern. In those three days, I have become a better, faster writer. I have gotten more comfortable with calling and interviewing people over the phone. I have had the chance to get to know the city of Washington, D.C., just a little more.

If you want to keep up with my reporting and writing, you can follow my Examiner work here. I’ll also post a weekly roundup of my clips here. This is what I worked on last week:
