Vannah Shaw's Profile

I am a senior at MU and am obtaining a major in journalism and sociology with a minor in black studies. I am from the great city of St. Louis, and I originally became involved in journalism as a way to educate the black community about issues that affect it in a way that is relevant to people's lives.

I began my quest in journalism with a high school internship at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I have since learned so much about the field at the St. Louis American, the St. Louis Argus, Montgomery Advertiser, and Des Moines Register newspapers.

Although the way I have chosen to execute my passion has shifted since I first entered the university, my main objective is still to spread knowledge and "help somebody as I pass along then my living shall not be in vain." (A. Bazel Androzzo)
