I am currently enrolled at Miami University as a philosophy major. I have worked on the University’s student-run newspaper The Miami Student for the last three years where I used to be the Online Editor. I was charged with putting the print stories online, as well as distributing them through our social media channels. I helped to oversee our transition into a more a digital-minded newspaper.
Moreover, I continue to write a weekly column, “Milam’s Musings,” about a range of topics from personal to school life to the political and social issues of the day.
In my fourth year, I will transition to covering the police beat and working closely with the Miami University Police Department to monitor their activities and arrests.
This past summer, I interned with the Post Independent in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and gained invaluable experience as a reporter covering small-town issues from marijuana licensing to a local resident being honored at the White House. I also had a “viral” story that remains the most popular story ever run by PI.
I have a great passion for politics and social issues, as well as movies, books, and music. Sometimes, I even use the power of the pen for fun fictional and non-fictional writings, as well as the occasional poetry.
