Recent College Editor in Iraq
If you're looking for inspiration, The San Francisco Chronicle has a column today on a recent college journalist who is now covering the war in Iraq for The Washington Post.
Megan Greenwell was editor in chief of the Columbia Daily Spectator 2005 while she was a student at Barnard College.
Greenwell first distinguished herself as a journalist in high school when she was working as a reporter for Berkeley High School's biweekly student newspaper, the Jacket. She broke the story of a teenage girl from India, a fellow student at Berkeley High, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning in a Berkeley apartment building whose owner had brought the girl to the United States as a sex slave.
