In early July, when activists stormed the streets of Kuala Lumpur to protest the Malaysian government, University of Nebraska-Lincoln student Alexis See Tho was there, reporting on the scene.

See Tho, a news-editorial major at UNL and native of Malaysia, spent the summer working as an intern at Malaysia Insider, an online media outlet.

Working for an online entity gave her the freedom to report on the allegations of government corruption, she said.

“All the mainstream media is owned by the government, but online has never been owned by the government.”

The experience taught her a lot about journalism, she said. She plans to finish her final year at UNL and is contemplating several career options: photography, working on documentaries or teaching.
