You’ve been able to hear all about how I pitched the stories for my Hometown Stories project and I am happy to tell you that I had a lot of success! When I first started the project, my office told me that the intern last year had a lot of luck and got four stories placed and that was the current record to beat. And I started getting nervous that I wouldn’t do as well and that I would be a disappointment. It turns out, I had no reason to be nervous. I actually ended up getting 17 placements with more still to come! I got a few photo credits in some of the articles and I was so happy that I was able to get some of the interns the recognition they deserved.
