Cameron GloverI gained an early interest in journalism participating in my high school's journalism program in Dayton, Ohio, and have continued learning about the profession as a student in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University.
I am an active member in several student-run organizations at OU, including the Society of Professional Journalists, the Association for Women in Communications and the OHIO Transfer Ambassadors, a program for students thinking of transferring to the university. I was the editor of the SPJ-produced newsletter, INC, which is distributed electronically to all students and faculty members in the journalism school.
I also spent 10 weeks in Merida, Mexico, studying Spanish and learning about the Yucatecan culture, which was an unforgettable adventure that I miss every day. While I was in Merida, I contributed to OU's Office of Education Abroad's website as a foreign correspondent sharing tales of my travels and delicious and authentic Mayan food that my host mother made for my roommate and me.
I will receive a degree in magazine journalism in November and plan to apply to graduate school after spending a few years in the field. I hope to further my studies in media law to better understand the profession that regularly entertains and confounds me. I am excited to encounter the challenges and summer events that the Scripps Howard Foundation has provided, and I am grateful for the opportunity.
