On June 8, the Asian American Journalism Association (AAJA) announced the 40 high school students who have been accepted to participate in its journalism camp. The association brings together a diverse range of writers to strengthen their writing skills. The AAJA believes the ever-changing journalism field needs a diverse community of journalists, not only racially but also economically, religiously, and politically. This new change will allow different viewpoints on issues.
The journalism camp sought to pick out the most gifted students to attend the conference at Emerson College in Boston. Organizers of the camp strove to choose several talented and renowned journalists to enlighten the young writers. ♦
