I’m a junior at ETSU and am majoring in journalism. I am a writer and section editor for our campus publication, the East Tennessean. In the spring of 2008 I studied abroad at the University of Ghana and wrote a twice-weekly column about my adventures living in West Africa. After I graduate, I plan to spend more time writing in Africa (or other third world countries) about important issues so that I can help raise awareness for them.
