*An earlier version of this caption misstated the name of the museum.

MU sophomore Jennifer Birdsall writes a story about the MU Museum of Anthropology's* exhibit, "Walk the World: Shoes from Six Continents," as an assignment for her multimedia journalism course. She was required to write an entire story using her mobile phone. To avoid paying out-of-state tuition fees to attend the MU School of Journalism, Birdsall was required to get a Missouri driver's license, register to vote in Missouri and earn $2,000 in one year.
