Hello! My name is Kelly Mulligan, and this is my work-in-progress blog. I'm currently studying Journalism and Earth Sciences at Eastern Michigan University, and I hope to eventually use my education for journalism in the future. I grew up closer to Detroit in Lathrup Village and Southfield, Michigan, and moved to Ypsilanti during college, where I've been since then.
While I'm not working on journalistic projects for school, I am usually working. I've been working in retail for around 2 and a half years, and I've been working at a hotel for a year. Balancing work and school is a lot of the challenge I see in my life, as well as focusing on other things I like to do. While I attempt to have a social life, I also enjoy music (just as much as journalism), and spend a lot of my extra time listening to music, as well as playing guitar and singing.
Now down to the important things: Journalism. I'm currently working on my minor in Earth Sciences, which is primarily what I plan on reporting on for my future career (hopefully!). While most of my blog work will be on subjects regarding climate change, pollution, and worldwide environmental problems, I also plan on writing about things I find important too. This includes a lot of social movement issues, and some political issues as well.
Maybe I will even find some time to do experimental journalism, and I'm really hoping I will have some opportunities for travel journalism.
Looking forward to my next official post,
