Washington, DC


From January to May 2011, I lived and worked as a reporter in the capitol of the United States – Washington, DC. I wrote for the Daily Herald – the number three newspaper in Illinois and the voice of the Chicago suburbs. I covered U.S. representatives from the Chicago suburbs and Illinois senators in written stories that appeared both in print and online for a suburban audience. I wrote longer form feature stories, two of which ran on the front page of the Daily Herald, business stories, day-turn stories on legislature, and more. I also did some photography and used social media during my internship.

I chronicled my experiences of both reporting and living in Washington, DC in my blog, Miss Thompson Goes To Washington.

I wrote a total of 20 articles (and contributed to an additional two) for the Daily Herald. You can find them listed below:
