Zach Armstrong is a current NSC intern. He’s a senior at Virginia Commonwealth University majoring in Mass Communications and minoring in Political Science. To quote Hunter S. Thompson, he is pursuing a career in journalism because it “…uses the English language as both a musical instrument and a political weapon.” His hobbies include reading nonfiction books and playing guitar.

We asked Chloe to summarize her time at the Chronicle: “My comfort zone is creative nonfiction. At first I hesitated about how this would translate to a journalistic publication like The Northside Chronicle, but the managing editor helped me integrate my creativity into news writing. My summer with the Chronicle taught me how to dig for compelling narratives in any story. I will keep the knowledge and experience I gained as I navigate the next steps in my career.”
Sarah Gross is a past NSC intern and a rising junior at the University of Pittsburgh majoring in Nonfiction Writing.
