Spotlight: Jackie Wang and News21

Journalism senior Jackie Wang developed hands-on experience as a reporter and editor at The Daily Texan and says her time there became "a big part in shaping what I wanted to do as a journalist." 

Now with support from the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on the Future of Journalism, she's putting that experience to work this summer at News21, a program enabling student journalists to produce multimedia stories for major outlets.

Wang joins a small team of graduate and undergraduate students and will help investigate the role factory farms play in drinking water quality. After News21, Wang will be a 2017-2018 Dallas Morning News Reporting Fellow, based in the Austin bureau.
