Claire Landsbaum's Profile
Former Vox Magazine reporter
Junior, Missouri School of Journalism
Major: Arts & Culture Magazine
Minors: Spanish, Anthropology
Hello! My name is Claire and I was a Reporter for Vox Magazine and for the Columbia Missourian in the spring of 2013.
WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?
I was born in Boston, Massachusetts, but raised in Houston, Texas. I’m a Texas girl at heart but chose to attend Mizzou because of the excellent Journalism school. My passions are writing, dance, the arts, literature, baking and sending letters—I’m a huge fan of snail mail.
WHAT KIND OF JOURNALISM KEEPS YOU GOING?
I like stories about people. Whether they be famous musicians or local artisans, stay-at-home moms or politicians, I find people inherently interesting. I love to share individual stories. The novelties of everyday experiences fascinate me and I do my best to share them with the public in an interesting and compelling way.
