My name is Kathryn Freitag and I’m a journalism student at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
I believe everyone has a story to tell, and my main goal as a journalist is to shed light on the unseen, grant a voice to the silenced, and share remarkable stories of people in my community.
I always knew broadcast journalism suited me because I loved being in front of the camera and watching the news, but in addition, I decided to work at the local newspaper during my senior year, The Washington Missourian, to expand my skill set.
With a variety of journalism experience, I have learned to love each aspect. That being said, my strongest passion lies in visual storytelling. I can creatively convey messages through video and photography that have the power to generate a significant reaction from my audience.
While I’m proud of the accomplishments I have attained and the impact my work has on my peers, my top priority is to serve the public's interest; it’s my job to inform them and showcase myself as a reliable, useful source.
