With Titan Legacy Magazine


I spent my senior year of High School on the school's publication, Titan Legacy. It was an incredibly enlightening experience and I learned a lot about videography, interview etiquette, and working as part of a staff. I wrote one review piece and produced six video interviews about various happenings in the school and local area. My video on the Papillion Landing rec center won 1st place in the 2019 NSAA State Journalism awards for "Broadcast Sports Story".
