Jennifer Huma Accepted To Cronkite School Of Journalism
by Tierra Lomabalaquihoya - Hopi High School Bruin Times Reporter
HHS Bruin Times Editor Jennifer Huma

Jennifer Huma, a junior at Hopi High and Bruin Times editor, has been accepted to attend the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism summer program at Arizona State University.

Huma said being accepted into the program felt incredible. When she read her email stating that she had been accepted, she couldn"t wait to tell people about the great news.

"I hope to learn new journalism techniques, to further my education and how to get a successful career in journalism. I am also looking forward to learning new skills and taking other people"s knowledge and putting it to use toward the
future," she said.

Huma said she is looking forward to working with other students and adults from other schools; and said she is looking forward to working on a college campus to gain college experience.

"I"m interested in journalism because students can voice opinions, share news and create a sort of entertainment," she said.

Huma said she doesn"t know what types of stories she would like to cover while at Cronkite.

"I would like to cover a wide variety of stories while I"m there. It doesn"t matter to me what type of story. I just want to make the best of it," she said.

Huma said she likes being part of the Hopi High radio class.

"It was great being in the Hopi High Radio Teen Show. I learned a lot. Radio is not a lot different from journalism. Merging what I learned in both classes help me a lot with communication skills," she said.

Huma said her sister was very happy about her being accepted. Her teachers Stan Bindell and Dirk Wirth were also happy. They congratulated her on the acceptance to Cronkite.

"My advice for students coming into the journalism class is having fun. Take good notes to make a good story. Be open to new ideas and tips from people," she said.
