O'Farrell High School Student Earns Internship at San Diego Union-Tribune

Vryan Feliciano, current O'Farrell senior, took on the San Diego
Union-Tribune Community Journalism Scholars Program internship this
summer. Designed for budding high school journalists from across the
San Diego county, Vryan was one of six selected to walk the walk of a
professional journalist. Using his experience from editing O'Farrell's
newspaper (The Kaleidoscope) and literary magazine (61st & Skyline),
Vryan shadowed employees from the U-T newsroom and was assigned
professional interview assignments. Vryan learned how to write various
types of news articles, developed interview skills, and was taught how
to produce video interviews. His assignments took him from his
workplace at the U-T to the San Diego County Fair and to San Diego
Mesa College. Ultimately, Vryan was published several times online in
the Union-Tribune and L.A. Times, and was featured in-print in a U-T's
Sunday issue.
