News Team: Meeting Trailblazers

News Team Trailblazer interview - Jacqueline Martinez
ThreeSixty Reporter Jacqueline Martinez interviews a St. Thomas student doing environmental science research along with writing coach Stephanie Figy.

Twin Cities trailblazers arrived at the University of St. Thomas College of Arts and Sciences on Saturday, Jan. 25, ready for their interviews with ThreeSixty reporters.

The trailblazers we will feature in our April magazine include climate change and gun violence prevention advocates, a chef, a new St. Thomas leader, a local change-maker, activists and inventive publisher.

ThreeSixty students interviewed their sources with writing coaches by their side. After the interviews, ThreeSixty alumnus and WCCO Photographer Dymnah Chhoun captured the trailblazers around the campus.

Students powered through an extended day of writing, and  all completed a first draft of their story. Next week, they’ll work with editors to get their stories ready for publication.
