My Resume: PDF-version
My name is Hailey Ross, and I am a fourth-year student at the University of Virginia majoring in English with a minor in African-American and African Studies and a concentration in the history of the Civil Rights Movement. I am currently interning for The Idaho Statesman as a news reporter and feature writer. During the school year I serve as the News Editor for The Cavalier Daily, which means I manage a section of roughly 40 writers in addition to writing articles and covering breaking news. I have also served as an Editorial Intern for the Virginia Quarterly Review, a national literary journal, and freelanced for many organizations including the Fredericksburg Parent Magazine, The Virginia Advocate, and Websites for Anything.
I have dedicated my time to covering the news fairly and always hold the highest regard for underlining the truth. I specialize in writing about politics, culture, and human interest stories. During my time at U.Va. I’ve covered the University’s Board of Visitors, local Virginia government, the Eramo v. Rolling Stone LLC. trial, updates on North Korea captive Otto Warmbier, and other University affairs. The Cavalier Daily has a specific formatting guidelines for structuring their articles. Although this style is clean and clear cut, I also have the ability — without editorializing — to write articles which have more of a narrative to create a more compelling and interesting story.
Outside of my writing life, I love to garden and am currently cultivating two tomato plants of the Mr. Stripey and New Girl tomato variety, along with a bed of flowers and herbs in the backyard. In my spare time I enjoy reading, painting, writing fiction, and visiting art museums.
