Plugged-In Reporter | Melissa Chi
Hi, my name is Melissa Chi. I'm a senior at The University of Toledo majoring in communication with a concentration in journalism and a minor in economics. I'm originally from Malaysia, where my family still resides. Besides being a Plugged-In reporter, I'm also the news editor at The Independent Collegian, UT's student paper. Other than taking classes and being a reporter, I'm also a member of UT's Wilderness Expedition Club [WEX] where fun activities such as rock climbing, hiking and camping are organized. I spent the fall semester of 2007 in Washington D.C. as a reporter for Talk Radio News Services and learned that journalism is truly my passion, in any form of media. Currently, I'm also a reporter for Palestra.net, a Web site featuring college news from across the country, affiliated with Fox News, where I shoot, write and edit video packages to be broadcasted online. Upon graduation, I'm considering two routes. The first, the journalism graduate program with Reuters, a two-year program located in Europe. Or, find a reporting job in the United States. Wherever the road takes me, my experiences gained here will take me far in life. I know I have truly lived, after I've seen and been to every corner of the world, tell their stories to the people on the other side.
