Bethany Trueblood enjoys writing and taking pictures, but is unsure how she will use her skills in the future.
Trueblood is a senior news and editorial major from Omaha, Neb. She is involved on campus, working as a resident assistant in Schramm residence hall and as a copy editor at the Daily Nebraskan.
In May, she will join CoJMC associate professor Bruce Thorson and fellow students on a photojournalism trip from Nebraska to Texas. The group will follow migrant farm workers and cover the issues they encounter in their daily lives.
“Journalism is becoming more and more visual,” Trueblood said. “I want to develop my visual skills because it will be useful for a future career.”
Trueblood said she also hopes to travel on another journalism related trip to New Delhi, India in July. She said she has never been outside of the US and is looking forward to the opportunity.
“I’m excited to get hands-on experience in another country and to see the differences between media here and media there.”
