My name is Meghan Gaffney, I am a senior at Virginia Commonwealth University studying print-online journalism. I have worked for two publications, Capital News Service and Richmond Magazine, and have been published numerous times throughout the state. I have also worked as a production assistant on a music video set, crafted TV scripts for commercials and assisted with editing content for a promotional video. In my free time I have volunteered with my University through a community outreach program through the university wellness center.
