The end

Last Day on the job

Yesterday was quite the experience. Being in a newsroom for more than ten hours working on multiple projects is stressful, but rewarding. Since I filmed the footage we took at the Ducks game on Wednesday, I had the job of scripting/editing the whole thing. This is really my favorite part of it all. It’s incredible to see everything come together and you end up with such a complete project. Although this process was at times painful and overwhelming, in the end it’s all worth it.

For me, today is more of a relaxed day because I am practically done with my assignments. I think the video came out really good and I’m proud of my team for producing such a cool piece of work. I hope everyone else that sees it likes it as much as I do.

I’m really going to miss all the people I met here. At first, I was hesitant to whether I would click with any of the other students here, but now there is no doubt in my mind these people will be my friends after we leave Stony Brook. Everyone here is so open-minded and ambitious. It’s refreshing to see young people be so passionate about something, while having a blast at the same time.

I also hadn’t seen Reid since freshman year, so reuniting with him has been awesome. It’s weird how even after a long period of time, some friendships can pick up right where they left off. Plus, Lisa is now a homegirl. I really hope all of us hang out after this program and stay connected throughout high school, and even college.

I have learned so much this week that I never thought I would have. Even though some activities weren’t exactly my favorite, in the end they helped me become a more well-rounded journalist.

I’m still not exactly sure if I want to become a journalist. I think I just don’t want to restrict myself to one career just yet. Trying out all these new things has been really beneficial to me. Learning photography with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Williams was such a cool opportunity. I’m excited to take these skills back to Shelter Island’s journalism program.

P.S. Hi Emma if you’re reading this. :)

It’s been real, Greene Team

 

Will definitely miss the photography class
I will definitely miss the photography lessons.

Last night, Professor Wasim and I had a heart to heart. We shared our opinions on journalism and he told me all about his job. We came to an understanding of how we both have different opinions on the field and we respect each other’s differing ones. I am not going to completely rule out journalism as a profession, but I do want to explore other options.

On the way back from working in the newsroom last night, Hanna Da’Mes, Sharon Ahmed, Dan Walocha, Kelly Colligan, Reid Rubio, Kayla Aponte and I played tag as we walked to the dorms. It was a lot of fun, but I thought one of us would trip in the dark—good thing that didn’t happen!

The CAs were really laid back last night because they let us all hang out in the lounge an hour past our curfew. We hung out with the math kids in the lounge and they were so much fun! They left today, so we are all really going to miss them tonight.

This morning we worked on our video footage and by early afternoon my team and I were all done. I really like how it came out and the four of us worked very well together.

Lunch today was a nice change because we had pizza in a conference room. I was running out of ideas for wrap creations in the cafeteria so that took the pressure off. At lunch it hit us how we are all going to miss each other.  The Greene Team got so close in such a short period of time. I know that we will all stay in touch even when the program ends.

I am looking forward to seeing the movie tonight at the Film Festival. I think it will be a wonderful way to end the camp with all of us hanging out together.

I hope that the friendships I made this week last for a long time. I met some really amazing people and I will miss each and every one of them.

It’s been real, Greene Team!

An unforgettable week

I can’t believe the week is coming to an end. The days were certainly longer, and the nights shorter. But the experience was definitely one that will last forever. I am so grateful that I was chosen to be part of this program that cost me nothing, but taught everything; the different aspects of journalism, friendship, living the college life. I couldn’t have asked a better way to spend this last week of July. I wish it could have last longer.

Here at Stony Brook University, the Greene Gazette program is the first summer getaway I have ever experienced throughout my teenage life. I made great friends in the span of one week and we bonded as if we’ve been friends our whole lives. I enjoy having girl nights with them because we talked, laughed and joked about everything. My roommate, Kelly Colligan, was the best roommate I could have ever asked for.

Going to Newsday showed me that journalism is not simple and a lot of work has to be done. It also gave me a clearer picture of how diligently people work in the field. In addition, I enjoyed going to my first ball game ever, the Ducks. I took pictures and  jumped in the bouncing house with Hanna, Reid, Madison and Noelia.

Most importantly, I am thankful that the team and I had amazing and supportive professors who organized this program in honor of the late Bob Greene, who left them motivated enough to organize this institute. Wasim Ahmad for teaching us about blogging, Cathrine  Duffy  for her lessons and patience and Zachary Dowdy for his motivation and the other professors who also participated in the program.

Their teachings have changed our perspective on journalism for the better. I took what they had to offer in such a small amount of time and applied it to what I really want to do in life. I know for sure wherever life takes me, I will definitely take some type of photography and writing courses in college. They will both be an aspect in my life. This experience has really been a week to remember.

Thirsting for a good story

We got right onto the world of a real journalist today. We were on our way to the interview with Assistant Police Chief Eric Olsen without even knowing who Eric Olsen was or what he did. Professor Ahmad said it happened all the time – sometimes journalists have to work on the spot and don’t have time for research or to prepare. We missed the bus that took us to Stony Brook’s police station, where we had the story. It was a half hour walk, which was in the heat, and brutal. It went relatively quick because we had to do all our research for the story on our walk. We came up with questions, walked up hills and streets in the blazing sun carrying all of our video equipment, being true journalists on the job.

We got into the police station (eventually) sweating with and thirsty, but ready to start the interview. We met with the chief of police, Robert Lenahan, and all acted as a team all doing different things to conduct an interview. I was in charge of taking pictures of the interview. In the second interview, I got to videotape and was in control of all the shots, which made me feel in control and able to express my own ideas with my group members. We shot a lot of B-roll with the interviews which I was already comfortable with from previous TV classes at my school.

The eventful day and heat continued as we finished the interview. We had to walk back to the library as we missed the bus, again. This walk was easier and quicker than the first because we all weren’t as tense to how we were going to go on the scene to write this story.

Since we missed the bus both ways to the police station, Professor Ahmad said he would treat us to Starbucks. Well, since our transportation didn’t go well the entire time of the interview why would anything go right? Right? Right. Starbucks was closed and we continued the journey of heat back to the library. We eventually got to the SAC and took a breather after a long and sweaty walk and decided to capture the unexplainable journey with none other than a selfie.

We don’t actually work for Newsday

I had a chance to work the camera with Jacqueline. We managed to snap this quick selfie in the broadcast studio.
I had a chance to work the camera with Jacqueline. We managed to snap this quick selfie in the broadcast studio.
I can’t believe the week is already half over. Yesterday was jam-packed with ducks, cameras and good advice. The first thing we got to do was practice filming in front of a real broadcast studio. We each got our turn to play the anchor, the cameraman, floor manager, and more. Being on-camera wasn’t too much pressure, but I actually liked being at the teleprompter the most. It was really cool to see how broadcasting really works, and I loved seeing everyone laugh and have fun on camera.

Next, we visited Newsday to see the facility and talk to some journalists employed there. I was surprised at how huge the newsroom actually was. Everyone from sports writers to entertainment writers were hard at work. We even got some free t-shirts for our travels.

After visiting the newsroom, we sat down to hear some guest speakers. We listened to four or five journalists who spoke about their experiences, and how we could become better journalists. Each and every story was so inspiring and everyone seemed to genuinely love their jobs.

Following our Newsday tour, we drove straight to the Long Island Ducks game. I had never been to a Ducks game before, so I didn’t realize the amount of people that would come to support the team. Families, little league teams, couples, and loyal fans were just some of the enthusiastic fans that sat in the seats of the Bethpage Ballpark.

We got to work right away, beginning with a quick press conference with Ducks Media Relations & Broadcasting Manager Mike Polak. Everyone in the stands looked at us as we wore our green “Greene” shirts labeled “PRESS” on the back. I think the Newsday backpacks gave people a false impression that we worked for Newsday, but that was just fine to me. Once the game started, we got right to interviewing.

We interviewed about five or six fans on the rivalry between the teams, the Bridgeport Bluefish and the Ducks. It was fun filming B-roll, or background shots/action, because we got to watch all the diverse and interesting fans. The only downside was since I volunteered to film that day, I had to carry the camera, camera bag, and tripod everywhere we went.

Once we were finally finished interviewing, we left the game a little early. On the 45 minute bus ride home, we relaxed and listened to Bob Herzog talk about life as a sports writer.

After we got off the bus, we spent some time in the dorm’s recreation room, and played ping pong and pool with some of the students from the math program. Yaya and I walked up to our room like zombies, and crawled into bed to relieve ourselves of exhaustion. We woke up today again, at 6:30 a.m., and now we are blogging, at 8:37, at it again.

Kelly Colligan

Kelly Colligan: Shelter Island, then the world

For Kelly Colligan, growing up on Shelter Island means even a trip to the mall requires a long trip including a ferry.

But Kelly is far from sheltered. She keeps busy watching movies, being active in her school, Shelter Island High School, and working at a souvenir shop.

“Playing sports, doing journalism and making excursions to other places on Long Island helps me to experience the world around me,” Kelly said. “I’m hoping once I graduate high school to college some place outside of Long Island and experience other societies and cultures.”

Kelly, 15, was one of nineteen students selected to participate in the Robert W. Greene Summer Institute for High School Journalists this July.

Kelly’s interest in journalism arose two years ago during her freshman year of high school when her English teacher influenced her to join the class. She learned quickly and was soon promoted from staff writer to editor as a sophomore. Kelly said one of the main reasons she stuck with journalism was, the “realness” of it all.

“Writing articles, knowing that they may have an impact on society, is really cool,” Kelly said. “Journalism gives young people a voice that they are not given enough.”

When she is not in class writing stories and helping design the layout for “The Inlet,” her school’s newspaper, Kelly is an active teen. She plays multiple sports, including volleyball, basketball, soccer and softball.

“I really enjoy playing volleyball,” Kelly said. “I play on my school’s varsity team, and I play on a club team during the off-season.”

Her artistic side not only shines through her written work but also when she is acting on stage.

“ I have participated in school drama club since seventh grade, and I really enjoy that as well. This sounds corny, but I really enjoy making people laugh. I think that’s just the best feeling.”

Kelly said journalism has changed the way she approaches her writing.

“Journalism has improved my writing skills tremendously,” Kelly said. “It’s also taught me that print is risky, but sometimes as a writer, you have to take risks to become successful.”

As a staff writer during sophomore year, Kelly covered a wide range of topics. “I love trying new things,” she said.“. . . Seeing everything come together is exciting.”

Now as an editor, Kelly said she enjoys helping new writers develop their stories and putting the final touches on all the articles.

“I like getting a bunch of raw material and making it better,” Kelly said. “Seeing everything come together in the end makes me feel like I accomplished something worthwhile.”

For these reasons, she said, she hopes to continue studying journalism.

“Journalism is something I will somehow always take part in throughout my entire life,”Kelly said. “I feel privileged to be part of the selective Greene team.”

Noelia Vazquez

Noelia Vazquez: Many interests, singular passion

Noelia Vazquez does it all. Aside from singing, dancing, acting, teaching and traveling, Noelia possesses a driving passion for journalism. Noelia is proud to be a part of her school newspaper, East Islip High School’s The Broadcaster. When some students from the paper spoke with her English class about joining, she ran down to her guidance counselor to sign up.

“When I see someone passionate about something, it makes me want to try that exact thing,” Noelia explained.

Everything about Noelia is social: “I genuinely just love talking to people,” she said. “I think that’s one of the things that attracted me to journalism in the first place. I wanted to interview people find out their story and share it. Just interacting with new people to me is exciting.”

Noelia recalled creating her first article, remembering how she had to interview more than 15 students and teachers on their experiences in musical conferences. After finishing that article, Noelia decided that her one of her favorite parts of journalism was interviewing people.

“I like hearing people’s stories,” Noelia said.

Later on in her journalism career, she ran into a practice that almost all journalists loathe—censorship. Noelia wanted to write an article on a controversial topic, East Islip’s school mascot, the “Redmen.”

Noelia’s idea was shut down because her journalism class, including her teacher, believed it might offend the school board and didn’t want to bring unnecessary attention to the topic.

“We are still young and limited to what we can write about,” she said. “That’s probably the most difficult part of journalism.”

Singing and dancing is also a passion for Noelia—she’s even tried out for the TV talent completion “X-Factor.” She participates in the school musical every year, and has a big appreciation for music. But performing is not the only tool in her toolbox. Noelia speaks fluent Spanish and quite a bit of Chinese. Reading is a large hobby or hers as well.

“When I go to the library I take out nine books,” Noelia said. “But I have a life, I swear!”

In addition to attending this program, she plans to stay busy. She has four jobs:  answering phones at a Chinese restaurant, working at an Italian ice place, babysitting and teaching religion. Following in her sister’s footsteps, Noelia plans to dedicate a couple years of her life to just traveling.

Noelia said she hopes these experiences expand her horizons so that her writing can make an impact, saying “I want to write pieces that make people feel.”

She recalled being approached by an underclassman whom she did not know about one of her opinion pieces on society’s rigid expectations of women. The student said she was pleasantly surprised that the newspaper was writing about issues that teenagers could relate to.

“It makes me feel good when people are positively affected after reading my articles,” Noelia said. “That’s what keeps me coming back to the idea of becoming a journalist in the future.”

cross-campus trek

Cross-campus treks for a story

Day two continued with a final photography lesson with John Williams. Farewells were a tad sad, but we learned a lot in two days and it was great. I think the highlight of the day was being in the newsroom learning about broadcast and just as Professor Ricioppo finished his lesson Professor Ahmad rushed in and told us that we had to go cover our first story. In seven minutes he gave us background on what we were about to cover: a new emergency operations center is being built in the University Police center and we get to break the news. (By we, I mean the team of Kelly, Courtney and Jaqueline). Then Prof. Ahmad mentioned that we missed the bus and we had to walk a solid 27 minutes, which helped us prepare but the sun was scorching and halfway through I felt like a nomad with false hope of a destination. We made it in time and reporting was really fun.

After 2 hours of reporting, we missed another bus! Our timing was on point. As We started our journey back to the newsroom Professor Ahmad started sharing his career and different experiences he’s had.

Noting the disappointment of having to walk with the equipment, he offered Starbucks on him and we grew a bit joyous only to find a closed a Starbucks. I found the situations quite comical and thankfully we made it to the newsroom soon after with the relief that we were just in time for dinner.

A sweaty, yet exciting adventure

Right after we finished our second broadcast class, we were told our group was to travel to the police facilities to interview and film for a new article. No time to research – no problem. Since we missed the bus, we had to walk there. This actually helped us because it bought us time to formulate some questions for our article.

As we walked the 20-30 minute route, we discussed the articles we would be writing/filming about. We were to break news regarding Stony Brook University’s new emergency operations center, and then also touch on the station’s new police cars. When we finally arrived at our destination, we were welcomed by police officers who let us into the building to speak to the Chief of Police about the school’s new emergency operations center. I was impressed to see this shiny new room adapted into what looks like a control center in crime movies.

We filmed, scribed, and snapped photos all at once, and practiced the new skills we learned from our broadcast class. Then, we moved outside to take a look at the new police interceptors. We filmed some more, and after two or three hours, we were pooped. Although we had got the job done, we were tired, thirsty, and hungry. Turns out, we missed the bus going back too, so we were forced to walk in the hot summer sun.

On the bright side, Wasim promised to stop at Starbucks and buy us cold drinks. The only problem was, when we arrived at the Starbucks, it was closed. Wasim had crushed our precious dreams. To compensate, we stopped at the SAC and got drinks there. We decided to take a post-adventure sweaty selfie. Enjoy.

A selfie with Noelia

Photography class featuring selfies

Yesterday was quite an eventful day. We worked from morning until night nonstop, but I enjoyed every moment of it.

The new director of athletics, Shawn Heilbron, paid us a visit to discuss how he will be making improvements on Stony Brook’s athletic programs. Heilbron said he is eager to get started in his new position. This was the first time that Heilbron has met with student journalists at Stony Brook in his new position.

In the afternoon, John Williams taught us how to work the cameras and showed us cool techniques to get a photo just right. Noelia Vazquez and I got a little creative and took a selfie!

It was such a pleasure working with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and Newsday assistant photo editor, John Williams. He had so much knowledge on the subject and has so many interesting experiences from years of traveling the world. Williams taught us how to take still and action shots. We had a lot of fun shooting the action shots because we got to play around. We were running, tumbling, and jumping and the photos came out very well. Williams was as enthusiastic as we were and was happy to see us get so involved with the photography.

In the evening, Kelly Colligan worked with Noelia Vazquez and I on our video camera practice. We had so much fun! We asked people to do some pretty random things for us in our shots. For example, we found some guy to throw a penny into a fountain and then we had a lady read for us on a bench. Our inner-stalker side came out when we got footage of a man riding around on his bike and he had no idea we were filming him.

When I got back to the dorms at night I was disturbed by a Snapchat that my sister sent me. I have been gone for barely 24 hours and she has already moved into my room. Now I know what to expect when I go away to college!

My sister, Morgan, is currently taking over my room when I am away. She is wearing my Vineyard Vines whale hat, my white scarf, and my Coach pocketbook.

Bonding with all the Greene Team members has been fantastic. I can tell already that I will stay in touch with the people here for a long time to come. We are all getting along great and I have already made so many new friends, as well as become even closer with Sharon Ahmed and Alejandro Serrano from school.

Monday madness for the Greene Team

panning your subject

Yesterday was full of photography, cartwheels, and Double Stuf Oreos. We started the day by blogging and interviewing the new Athletics Director here at Stony Brook, Shawn Heilbron. I’ve never interviewed a subject among eighteen others, so that was really interesting. Heilbron was very well spoken and enjoyable to listen to. He gave us exactly what we needed to write our article.

After lunch, we got the privilege to learn from a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, John Conrad Williams. After seeing what an incredible photographer he was, I was a bit intimidated. But after Williams showed us some basic skills of photography, I became more confident. We ventured out of the ice-cold newsroom, and out to take photos of the fountain, and then on to portraits. After experimenting with the camera’s ISO, shutter speed and aperture, we moved on to action shots. We jumped, cartwheeled, and leaped across the grass, while our partner tried their best to capture the shot. One of my shots came out really cool, so I inserted it into this blog post.

Following our photography lesson, we ate dinner. I decided to make instant mac & cheese in the cafeteria’s microwave. Solid choice. Once everyone had finished eating, we began our broadcast lesson. Rick Ricioppo was our instructor, and he helped us assemble the camera on the tripod, and get the most out of our videos. Towards the end of the lesson we got the chance to test out our new skills and tape some scenes outside. We filmed everything from footsteps to still nature. I’m excited to see how our (very random) movie comes out.

After a very long day, we situated into the dorms. All the girls gathered in one room to play a fun game called Scattergories. We laughed at every single response while shoveling down Double Stuf Oreos and Doritos. Party games and junk food is always a good time. After a few rounds of playing, my roommate Yaya and I went back to our room. I’m so glad Yaya is my roommate because we are so much alike. We will definitely keep in touch after this program ends. Let’s just say there’s never a dull moment in room C211.

A jam-packed day with lots of lessons

Monday, the first full day of the Robert W. Greene program, was a really excellent experience. In my previous blog post I described the excellent breakfast here, and I finished before we had the interview with Shawn Heilbron.

Heilbron is the new addition to the Stony Brook staff. He is the new Athletic Director and has high hopes improving Stony Brook’s sports reputation as a whole. In the interview we got to listen to Heilbron’s story as to how he got to be where he is today, and then we proceeded by each asking questions, acting like a real reporter. Through the question and answers we discovered that he is interested in building up the football and basketball program, and then marketing them to get more of an audience at the games. He would then use these funds from the games to fund the other sports equally, and even has hopes of starting up a new women’s sports team.

After the interview with Heilbron we headed out to lunch. Lunch was pretty good, there was a various amount of options, but I can personally say that the pizza was really good.

John Williams Photography ClassJohn Conrad Williams then came in and taught us about the ISO, aperture and shutter speeds of the camera. We then took the cameras outside and practiced taking pictures of moving targets and of each other. This was one of the best parts of the day, going outside where it’s not  -20˚ like in the newsroom.

Kelly Colligan by Reid RubioAfter the photo lesson, we took a dinner break, which was basically the same food as lunch, which was fine by me as long as there is pizza. Next, Professor Rick Ricioppo came in and taught us about the topic I’m most interested in—broadcast journalism. We learned the basics, most of which I had already known from my class in school, but I did learn a few things about layering which was really nice.

Even though the day felt never-ending, I did learn some really exciting new things that I can’t wait to take back to my broadcast program in my school and share.

No pillow. No fan. No problem.

Forgetting my pillow and fan seemed to be the worst way to begin my journey with the Greene Gazette team at Stony Brook University. However, that didn’t stop me from enjoying my first day with students I barely knew, who within the night became the best group of friends. I’m eager to learn new techniques and methods about journalism, and also looking forward to make and keep wonderful friends.

With a charming welcome and a barbecue, the team was able to learn a little bit about everyone and everything. We were also accompanied by a quick lesson on blogging and photography by our program advisors. They are wonderful people who take their time to teach us in order to accomplish Bob Greene’s dream.

My first night with the group has been excellent since my arrival. For someone who has never been in a residence hall or any summer program whatsoever, I quickly adapted to my short, but new environment. The students welcomed me kindly and even nicknamed me “YaYa.” I was pleased with the idea since I’ve never been given a nickname with my real name, Yardalie.

My roommate, Kelly, has been nothing but wonderful and friendly to me. We all spent the night eating pizza, chatting about boys, dancing and singing to the craziest music. It felt like we’ve been roomates our entire lives. And I enjoy every minute of it. As I’m excited to develop new ideas, I also hope this week could be longer and never end.

Blog #1: Not too shabby

I have survived the first night here at Stony Brook. My roommate, Yardalie, is so nice and a really good singer. I always mispronounce her name, so I gave her the nickname “Yaya.” She says she likes it, so it works. Last night I finally convinced Yaya and my other friend Noelia to sing. The kids here are all so talented and diverse. Last night we all ordered pizza and watched Monsters University. Despite how juvenile the movie sounds, it’s actually very entertaining. The staff here is really welcoming too.

We went to bed earlier than expected, around midnight, and woke up pretty early. Let’s just say I’m not a morning person. We made our way over to the Student Activities Center, or the SAC. I enjoyed an overwhelmingly healthy meal of Lucky Charms and a sesame bagel. We are now sitting in the (very chilly) newsroom, writing these blogs. Earlier, we researched the new Stony Brook Athletic Director. Shawn Heilbron. It feels so weird to be researching and gathering interview questions. Although it’s only been four weeks since I last did this, it feels like forever.
