My name is Emily McConville, and I am a rising junior at the University of Notre Dame majoring in history and minoring in journalism and business. For the last two years I was a writer and photographer for The Observer, Notre Dame’s campus newspaper; last spring I interned at the South Bend Tribune; and I am currently an intern in the Tampa bureau of the Tampa Bay Times. I will spend the next year studying abroad in Rome, where I hope to keep a travel blog and get better at photography.
When I have spare time, I read literary nonfiction and non-literary fiction, listen to Italian hip hop, post snarky statuses on Facebook and try to sneak the Oxford comma past my editors. One day, I will convince the world that these are exciting.
I hope to go into journalism. If you’re wondering what kind of journalism – print or online, arts or business, features or breaking, international or local – I’ll have to get back to you. I’m trying anything and everything to figure out what I do best and what I like best. In the meantime, I’ve provided some reading material for your wait. Please enjoy, don’t hesitate to leave comments or constructive criticism, and feel free to get in touch.
