New York Times Academy

This winter I applied for a summer program with the New York Times.  The program is taught by staff writers and editors of the Times as well as other New York City journalists. I applied to the ‘Cultural and Creative Writing’ course, which includes trips to Buzzfeed HQ, Filming of The Daily Show, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Vulture Media office, publishing houses and more. The course is two weeks long, and the students stay in the dorms of Fordham University. To apply I wrote an essay, answered short answer questions, submitted my transcript, psat scores, and sent in teacher recommendation letters. Last week I received an email accepting me to the program, and yesterday I enrolled. I am so excited to be back in another prestigious journalism school in my favorite city.
