¡Mucho gusto! I’m Greta Anderson, a junior at Temple University studying for a BA in journalism and Spanish language. I’m interested in international & immigration reporting with a focus on Latin America – during the Spring 2018 semester I am enrolled in the Latin American Studies Semester at Temple, which mimics a Spanish language immersion program. Actualmente, I am studying at the Andean Center for Latin American Studies for three and a half weeks in Quito, Ecuador. I am living with una familia adoptada y estoy experimentando los vistos de los Andes y Amazonas en South America. While I’m here, I’ll be creating content for Lo último, Temple’s Spanish news service.

Por supuesto, tengo mi DSLR cámara conmigo, creating multimedia content in our ever-stimulating world of news and continue my love for photography. In Philadelphia, I am a staff designer and photographer for The Temple News, the city’s award-winning collegiate newspaper – Tuesdays in print & always online. I’ve also been working as a Peer Writing Tutor at the Temple University Fox Business Communications Center since January 2017, where with my excellence in English grammar & writing structure, I tutor business students’ writing assignments.

Last summer, I interned at a research firm in Washington, D.C. where I did journalistic research in both English and Spanish while also growing my skills and knowledge in code development. I’m now well-tuned in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Python markup languages (see Github repository) as well as application and data visualization programs like Django, High Charts and d3. At the Washington firm, I learned how to hard code a database scraper to build customized data sets from large sources to fit the firm’s needs, and worked in a Django application to collect, display and analyze our database.

My freshman and sophomore year at Temple I worked on Temple’s student-run magazine, Fourteenth Street (@14thStreetMag on Twitter); I’m the student mag’s former online managing editor. I’m originally from Rockville, Md., where as a senior I was the Editor-in-Chief of my high school print newspaper, the award-winning Rampage. At the end of my high school career I received of the Journalism Education Association’s Journalist of the Year award for the state of Maryland and the Maryland Delaware D.C. Press Association’s High School Journalist of the Year award.
