Working with the National Student Investigative Reporting Network (NSIRN) was

one of the most valuable experiences I could have gotten out of this program.

The work was interesting and I truly felt like I was a part of history in the making. I

became a more professional journalist and made great connections. You have to

absolutely be a self-starter in order to succeed at NSIRN. I’d recommend this

internship to students who enjoy doing a lot of research and are able to work with

very little direction. For me, I saw this as freedom to pursue any angle I wanted.
