The Journal Review welcomes DePauw University senior, Nana Aduba-Amoah, as she joins the staff to embark on an internship this summer.
Born in Ghana, West Africa, and raised in Chicago, Aduba-Amoah’s collegiate career has brought her from busy streets to the quiet backroads of Greencastle. She is currently majoring in communication and minoring in political science with a concentration in journalism. This summer, she was selected by the HSPA to be a Pulliam intern for the Journal Review.
Aduba-Amoah always had a passion for writing. Throughout her childhood, she enjoyed inscribing short stories, poems and reading a plethora of books during her spare time. When she joined the yearbook team as a student at Lane Tech College Prep High School, she immersed in her first journalistic experience. However, she decided to explore journalism when she became a staff writer for DePauw’s student newspaper, The DePauw, during her sophomore year.
Aduba-Amoah began by writing news stories about on-campus and Greencastle events for The DePauw, as well as writing news casts for DePauw’s student radio, WGRE. She partook in an investigative radio project that tackled the issue of class sizes at DePauw, which won second place for “Best Public Affairs Program” by the Indiana Associated Press Broadcast in 2011. In the winter of 2011, she interned for Premier Tourism Group magazine, writing print and online articles about various global tour sites and attractions.
In addition to writing for the newspaper at DePauw, she also participated in other student organizations. She was a member of DePauw’s Exalt! Gospel Choir and Public Relations Chair for an Organization entitled L.A.C.E (Ladies and Allies for Cross Cultural Education) her freshman and sophomore year. While working with L.A.C.E, she assisted in spearheading events that called for campus-wide discussions about essential issues.
During her free time, Aduba-Amoah still enjoys writing short stories and poems, as well as blogging about her day-to-day experiences. She hopes this internship will giver her a lot to write about.
