CONTRIBUTING WRITER FOR UNIVERSITY OF DENVER'S THE CLARION
In hopes of bringing a unique voice to the University of Denver, I spent my past few years on campus as a contributing writer for the campus newspaper, The Clarion. From food recovery efforts, to snowboarding movie premiers, I loved being able to share what I was passionate about with my fellow Denver peers. Below are a couple selected works (please note, not all articles are found on The Clarion's website).
At DU and most college campuses, food is easily and often wasted. However, a group of DU students realized the incredible waste that the campus was producing on a daily basis and decided it was time to do something about it. The nation-wide program known as Food Recovery Network was started at the in 2011 and was brought on to the DU campus in 2015. Several members of the DU chapter headed to Washington D.C. where they connected with chapters all over the country and even the founders. Furthermore, the various members of Food Recovery decided on lobbying the capitol with state congress members per state involved with Food Recovery. Both locally and nation-wide this organization is making a difference and has accomplished incredible things in only a short matter of years.
Put on by Red Bull House Media Films, the newly-released snowboard documentary, The Fourth Phase, starring Travis Rice gave people chills at the Denver premier on Sept. 29 and likely will induce similar feelings worldwide. The film centers on Rice and other highly talented and innovative snowboarders as they follow the Earth’s hydrological cycle, as a mean to chase winter and ride what they have never ridden before. From working with people on the Red Bull team and interviewing the producer of the film, I was able to get beneath the surface of the film and help share the heart of the story.
