What it takes to be a reporter in Boyle Heights

Students from five area schools got to jump into an intensive journalism program in Boyle Heights, diving into the key skills of writing and reporting, interviewing, and photography. “I learned a lot of things ranging from the key components of a story like the lead to the importance and impact of a ‘simple’ photograph. A story is not a story if it does not have an attention grabber.”  Youth reporters shared anecdotes as they began their reporting experience, on Boyle Heights Beat.
