A journalist looking for writing opportunities

About Me

Hello!

My name is Grace Watson.

Welcome to my website! This is my online portfolio of all the wonderful projects and news pieces that I have had the opportunity to create and publish throughout my time at college.

I'm an aspiring journalist who grew up in Berkeley Springs, WV. In December 2021, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Concord University with a degree in Communication Arts/Journalism and a minor in English.

The content published on this website will pertain to my goal of becoming a reporter/journalist. Content will mainly be written news pieces, as well as a few videos of news reels, donut spots (30-second commercials), and news segments.

Over the past four years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on several incredible projects that have allowed me to grow and establish my expertise regarding writing, editing, and producing content. 

Thank you!

A journey from an education major to a communication arts degree | Concord University

October 4, 2021 by Grace Watson About 80 percent of students in the United States end up changing their major at least once, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. I am a part of that statistic. At the end of my Freshman year, I changed my major from English Secondary Education to pursue a degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism.
