Student at MPR studio

“For me to be in MPR’s space of work, learn hands-on the things they do and the equipment they use, and network is amazing. My other favorite part is the group – the students were definitely lively and welcoming. We were all laughing on the first day.” Gloria Ngwa, Radio Camp ’23

 

“I got to learn about individual people and their experiences with law and their connection to their cultural identity. Throughout this camp I learned about how to use audio and learn to be a researcher and reporter. I haven’t had any lows this week – I see myself as a storyteller.” Douglas Buckanaga, Radio Camp ’23
