Amy Kossoff-Smith (BSJ89)

I had to talk my way back into Medill after saying “no” (mistake!) and DID! A high school article I wrote on college admissions was my lucky charm then, during Teaching Newspaper, when I updated it for the front page, as a William Randolph Hearst writing competition winner, and inspired my career, too. I absolutely credit my Medill education with launching me into the writing & editing space (after understanding I needed to experience advertising, business, and PR, also). My favorite Professor, Roger Boye, shared this picture with me, and that lucky charm article is still significant to me today!
