Biography

Hello, my name is Kristina and I am currently a copy editor for The South Jersey Times, a daily paper that covers Gloucester, Salem, Cumberland and Camden counties in New Jersey. I read the articles that go into the paper, edit them, edit photos, write headlines and design the layout of the paper...

What was your first job as a journalist?

My first out of school job is what I am doing now, a copy editor for The South Jersey Times.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

No, but I think it would be pretty cool to use one.

How is social media changing news?

It's allowing readers to get all their news from different sites all in one place.
