ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Appen Media Group welcomes a new summer intern to the newsroom.
Jordan Meaker joins three other interns who will work until the end of the summer covering a range of content topics, from government to community news, and everything in between.
From Suwanee, Meaker is a rising sophomore at the University of Georgia studying journalism and international affairs.
She is excited to know her community better and dive deeper into local issues that impact people on a daily basis. She’s also hoping to improve photography skills while seeing how a professional newsroom operates.
“Appen is the perfect newspaper for this because it covers several different communities that are really close to where I live,” Meaker said. “I’ll be able to learn about how a newsroom works while learning more about my local area at the same time.”
She joins Natasha Roy, of Milton, Jack Waylock, of Alpharetta, and Julia Sanders, of Cumming who will cover local news this summer.
