Biola University The Chimes Newspaper
Editor-in-Chief

May 2016 – present

My primary job as Editor-in-Chief includes mobilizing a staff of approximately 30 people to produce daily content on our website and an eight-page weekly paper. Using team-building and emotional intelligence, I have been able to provide a smooth transition to a shorter paper, increasing our overall efficiency, which in turn produced higher-quality content. I also seek out relationships with departments across campus, in order to maintain open lines of communication.

Communications Intern

June – July 2016

During my time as an intern, I wrote six articles and one blog post for OM’s Near East Field. I conducted interviews with several missionaries about their ministries and work primarily among the local refugee communities. I then conducted research and integrated cultural considerations into the content, which OM used to promote their organization and provide support for their missionaries on the field.
