"Humans of Sacred Heart" – Daniella Tocco ’20

What was your favorite memory/learning experience at the School of the New York Times?
“My time spent over the summer at the School of the New York Times was a great learning experience and unlike any camp I had done in the past.  My favorite memory from this experience was having the opportunity to visit the New York Times building.  My personal favorite part about this tour was when we were shown the archives that hung on the walls of the building.  These archives provide a historical feel, as each section represented a significant time in our history.  There were notes from each president of the United States framed below past news articles.”
What did you take away from this opportunity?
“This camp allowed me to learn a wide variety of techniques in broadcast journalism, but it also allowed me to learn about myself.  The course I took was called On-Camera Personality, in which we practiced being on-camera reporters.  However, my course not only taught me the art of being an on-camera reporter, but allowed me to explore my interests in journalism and build my confidence, creativity, and ability to work under pressure.”
Would you go through this program again?  If so, why?
“After completing this program, I left feeling satisfied, as I had learned so much, but also wanting to further my education in this field.  I would definitely go through this program again, as I believe there is still so much more I can learn about broadcast journalism.  This camp provided me with a hands-on experience of what life in the field is like, by bringing in speakers, taking us on field trips, and allowing us to create projects to share with others.”
