Click on photo to enlarge or download: Amanda PetersonI am a junior majoring in journalism and Spanish at the University of Alabama. I covered the UA administration and local and state government for two years for the campus paper. Over the summer, I was the health reporter at the Press-Register in Mobile, Ala., in addition to covering a few higher education stories and the America's Junior Miss competition.
I grew up in Vestavia Hills, Ala., watching my parents read The Birmingham News. I started paying attention to what was actually in the paper after I realized the political cartoons could be just as funny as the comics section. After saying for years that I wanted to be a special education teacher, I decided to stick with what made me happy when I got to college – reporting.
