Southwest Journalist

Nora Smith
Nora Smith is a rising senior from Spartanburg, South Carolina, who will graduate from Appalachian State University in December with a bachelor's degree in journalism with a minor in graphic arts and imaging technology. She will be interning at the Charleston (WV) Gazette-Mail this summer through the Dow Jones News Fund Multiplatform Editing program. She got into journalism through her school's student media and quickly realized there were more ways to tell stories than simply through words. Ideally, she'd like to start her career as a copy editor and page designer at a daily newspaper. She credits her professor, Carolyn Edy, as one of her journalistic idols because she tells important historical stories and mentors young journalists.
