Hello everyone! My name is Annaliese Punt and I am a freshman at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Mo.. During my senior year at Millard West High School in Omaha, Neb. I was the Editor-in-Chief of the Prowler Yearbook, the Hard News Editor of the Catalyst Newspaper and a reporter for the MWHS Wildcat News. I worked on the Yearbook staff for three years and was a Copy Editor my junior year. This was my first year on the newspaper staff. Working on these publications has advanced my knowledge of journalism while giving me the chance to challenge myself in multiple areas of writing.
This year I was named Nebraska's Student Journalist of the Year, and this was my portfolio! Throughout this website you will surely find my strengths, but you will also see the areas that I am working very hard to improve. My specialty is feature writing, as I have won multiple awards in that area, but in the past year I expanded my abilities and learned to love all forms of journalism. Enough chit-chat, you will hopefully learn enough about me through my work.
