For those of you that don’t know me personally, I recently attended the Miami Montage program at the University of Miami. At Miami Montage, student journalists from all around Florida are chosen to spend three weeks at the University of Miami where they write for UM’s annual publication; every year only 20 students are chosen. You can imagine my surprise and excitment when I got accepted! So, for the past three weeks I’ve been writing, researching, interviewing, filming, photographing- the basics of journalism. Attending this program ultimately reminded me of why I loved journalism in the first place, so I decided I would do a short series on my blog, titled “Things I Loved About Montage” so that those future students that apply can have a small sneak peak into what they’re getting themselves into.
So, now that my super long introduction has been written, let’s take a look at why these past three weeks have been phenomenal.
Number Four: The Goofiness
Memes: everybody loves them and everybody can’t stand them. Regardless, the laughs I shared with my fellow journalists and counselors made Montage that much funnier and relatable. Now I won’t go on a rant about how much I enjoy memes (which I do, with a passion), but I have to admit that something that made Montage such a great experience for me were the inside jokes that we created within those three weeks.
Also, since this is a short post, I will be posting a video that Maile made which was a combination of jokes we made.
