Leanne Rubinstein

Hello! My name is Leanne Rubinstein, I am a fourth-year student at CU Boulder studying journalism and vocal performance. I have a passion for opinion writing, though I also have experience in explanatory, news and feature writing. I plan to gear a journalism career toward music and the arts.

I currently hold an internship position with mxdwn.com as a breaking news writer for the music desk, publishing 9-15 stories each week following updates within the industry.

My relevant courses include writing for the media, opinion writing, fundamentals of reporting, reporting, media law and ethics, media representation of diverse populations, history of digital journalism, photojournalism 1 and principles of journalism, each giving me extensive practice in AP style.

I am a mezzo-soprano/belter musical theatre singer, and have both sung in and directed one of CU's coed a cappella choirs. I have had the opportunity to perform in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome!
