My name is Nicole Gimpl. I am a junior at Arizona State University where I hope to broaden my journalistic horizons and experience working in the field first hand.
This is my 4th year with experience in journalism. After participating in the 2014 Cronkite High School Summer Journalism Institute, I brought information back to my high school so our journalism program could advance further. While in the program, I found that I really liked what I was doing and that journalism is the career I want to pursue. After two years writing for my high school’s “Roar Magazine,” a semester writing for “College Times,” and one semester of writing for “State Press Magazine” under my belt, I believe I have the necessary skills and drive that it takes to be a great journalist. I’m also extremely excited to be a part of “Downtown Phoenix Journal” as their intern for the Spring 2017 semester!
I am also proud to announce that as of August 2017, I will be a digital news production intern with azcentral!
I can also announce that as of August 2017, I will be the digital producer for State Press Magazine!
In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching Netflix, singing and spending time with my friends and family. I hope to one day become a print journalist for Sunset Magazine, or work on the back end of a website integrating SEO to online packages.
