As a senior reporter for BYU's Daily Universe, I wrote weekly in-depth stories about hard-hitting issues in the community. I reached out to community members, professors, students and business representatives to gain a full understanding and to provide a balanced report on these issues. I had the chance to explore stories that piqued my interest and that were more extensive than stories I had previously had the chance to write for this organization. Below is a selection of stories I wrote while in this position.

Below is a selection of stories I wrote while on this beat.
