My name is Leanne Rubinstein, I am a recent graduate from CU Boulder with dual degrees in journalism and vocal performance. I have a passion for opinion writing, and also have experience in explanatory, breaking news, feature and creative writing. I plan to gear a writing career toward entertainment journalism or marketing.
I recently interned with with mxdwn.com as a breaking news writer for the music desk, publishing 9-15 stories each week following updates within the industry. I accumulated over 200 published articles by the end of the season.
My relevant courses include writing for the media, opinion writing, fundamentals of reporting, reporting, news corps, media law and ethics, media representation of diverse populations, journalism and social identity, history of digital journalism, photojournalism 1 and principles of journalism. These provided me extensive practice in AP style, WordPress, and Adobe and Microsoft programs.
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!
