My name is Asia Floyd and I will be graduating with my BA in Journalism and a minor in Africalogy and African American Studies from Temple University in December 2021. I have worked hard for four years in college and have even makes the dean’s list. Throughout my college years, I volunteered for a show called Temple Update. My goal after graduation is to work and eventually produce and direct my own show. I am very happy to be part of the first business internship program of the Amsterdam News Educational Foundation, because I think it is essential to learn the business side of journalism.

I’m Raegan Lee, a recent graduate from the University of Florida with a BA in International and Japanese Studies. Since I was a child, I have been interested in journalism sitting at the coffee table in my living room, creating my diary to show it to my grandmother. This then evolved into my high school journalism class for four years and ended it with a job as an editor my senior year. In college, I used the newspaper subscriptions provided by the university to follow the daily news. I think being informed about current events locally, nationally and internationally is one of the best ways to learn and understand the struggles of others. LinkedIn profile
