Journalism Camp for Merri who loves to write

Posted Feb 7, 2019
Merri has the opportunity to attend a specialized journalism camp at Indiana University this summer for 2 weeks. As a budding journalist who dreams of living and working in a big city some day, Merri knows this is just the sort of experience she will need to get her foot in the door at a place like the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, or a big magazine company. Merri has never visited a college campus, but she is confident that she will go to college one day. The price covers tuition, room and supervision in a college residence hall, meals, and most supplies. This is the type of experience not often available to foster kids like Merri. She dreams of being the next well known writer and this camp is the way to start getting her name out there!

Merri is 17 years old and lives in Cross Plains, IN

Merri is a very intelligent, motivated young lady. She plans to attend college after high school in the hopes of obtaining a degree in journalism. She is also something of a food aficionado and has talked about starting a food blog. She stays very busy with after school activities like journalism Club and sports like soccer and volleyball. She is very close to her younger sister and brother, and she has a way of always seeing the best in other people even if she struggles to do the same for herself.
