A Different Approach to Life

Picture of Michelle

Hello! My name is Michelle Bachmann a journalism major (history minor) at the University of Florida, graduating August 2008. I returned to college as part of a career change and recommend it for anyone not happy with the way his or her life is going. I believe that anyone can continue their education at any stage of life.

This May, I'll finish my undergraduate work with several weeks visiting Berlin and the Normandy coast on a study abroad program. This site is being developed with that trip in mind. The idea is to post my work online directly from the field, attach my resume, and send it to a perspective employer.

My goal is to develop, write, and photograph the subject of my own stories. But I don't want to be restricted to any one medium. The convergence of print, photo/video and online media make clear that traditional approaches to journalism, while still necessary, are falling short of today's multimedia needs.

I currently do freelance writing for The Gainesville Sun and hope to post some work from Europe on their site this spring.So check back for updates from the road.
