I’ve won an Associated Collegiate Press award for reporting on student parents as a freshman, parachuted into and written about 300-person towns in North Dakota, pestered a senator for an interview in the Hart building cafeteria on Capitol Hill, been among the first to see An Inconvenient Sequel, camped out in rural Minnesota for hours reporting on a developing standoff on a farm, sat in on a 39-hour Missouri Senate filibuster, interviewed supporters at a Trump rally and live-tweeted vice presidential-hopeful Mike Pence’s withdrawal from the governor’s race for a major news outlet.
