These Days: WKU Senior Capstone Team Project
With the finishline in sight, COVID-19 derailed what I thought my senior capstone class would look like. After spring break, my peers and I began working on this project that documents such a historical moment in time.
I worked as a contributor to this project with 13 of my peers and our advisor, Tim Broekema. For five weeks I interviewed the characters Rachel Taylor, Dylan Scott, and Jeff and Holly Prosser about how the COVID-19 pandemic was affecting their daily lives. I coached my characters on content gathering and then passed the content to our editorial team before deadline each week.
