Nakya Carter, Shaw University Student, Recaps Her Experience at the Online News Association Student Newsroom
Nakya Carter at ONA

Nakya Carter was recently invited to join Online News Association (ONA) Student Newsroom in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for hands-on experience in journalism.

The ONA Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab immerses 20 undergraduate and graduate college students in a digital media environment by providing hands-on experience during a paid trip to the 2023 Online News Association Conference (Aug. 23–26 in Philadelphia) and Online Journalism Awards Ceremony.

Each year, students and mentors are selected from pools of applicants and tasked with producing content and tools for the Student Newsroom website before and during the conference.

The Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab is generously supported by Microsoft Start and Democracy Forward, TEGNA Foundation and Canva.

Being apart of the student newsroom this past week with the Online News Association (ONA) was incredible! I met many people from across the states with diverse backgrounds, and I was challenged to improve and deliver in my writing skills. I was able to publish 4 articles in 4 days. Without the help of my peers and mentors in the program, I wouldn’t have been able to execute. So grateful for this experience and so grateful I’m able to represent Shaw University in spaces like this.
