Sarah Doiron ’17 is well-prepared to cover the world.
As part of an advanced international journalism course, she traveled across Nicaragua to meet with locals and tell their stories using a variety of multimedia resources.
“It was one of the most interesting experiences I ever had,” she said.
One of the most eye-opening experiences occurred when she visited a nursing home and witnessed how differently the elderly are treated there.
“There was a blind man there talking with us about how he didn’t get much help,” she recalled. “He told us about how other people make fun of him and guide him into walls.”
The trip changed her world-view and helped her use the many skills she developed during the three investigative journalism internships she completed at Quinnipiac. Coupled with her time as editor of our student-run newspaper, The Quinnipiac Chronicle, she has built an eclectic toolbox of skills and talents.
“I have so many skills I’ve developed over my years at Quinnipiac,” she said. “I have loved everything about my experience here. The Chronicle has given me plenty of learning opportunities to grow as a journalist, and being editor-in-chief has helped me grow as a person.”
