Tina Susman

In this special session, Tina Susman (TIME Magazine Senior Editor) and Katina Paron (senior project editor on The Trace’s award-winning gun violence series produced by youth reporters, “Since Parkland”) will discuss how to become a professional journalist. Topics to be covered include: journalism skills that can be acquired in high school and college, majors in college, and the importance of internships. Tina and Katina will also discuss the life of a foreign correspondent, but they'll also explain the process of a news story becoming published in-print and online.  

This slot is reserved for students. All-conference ticket holders may audit the session but not participate actively.
