Hello. My name is Rebekah Barnes and I am currently a senior at Ohio University in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. I am a senior writer at The Post, a news media outlet in Athens, Ohio. I work on long-form features and search for the untold stories within the student population and the hills of Appalachia, and share them in a digital-first format.
I was an intern at The Chautauquan Daily during summer of 2016. At the Daily, I was a beat reporter for dance, Chautauqua Institution Board of Trustees and Chautauqua Property Owners Association amidst a town devoted to lifelong learning and an appreciation of culture.
I have a great desire to travel the world and explore the stories of others. I want to apply the skills I have learned in writing, videography, photography and multimedia reporting to act as a mouthpiece for individuals whose voices might not otherwise be heard. My interest is in features, arts and entertainment and lifestyle pieces.
This site contains video and written pieces from my capstone course at Ohio University, which was all about food journalism.
