A reporter for the Wilmington-based publication The News Journal, Krys'tal Griffin has found her place as a local journalist, reporting on everything from local to breaking news.
Griffin, a 2021 graduate of the University of Delaware's Department of English, had multiple internships with The News Journal during her time at the UD, including the opportunity to participate in the Ellen Cannon Interns6hip Program. Named after UD English alum Ellen Cannon, whose gift to UD in 2012 established this competitive program, the internship gave Griffin both a stipend and the opportunity to work with the paper to help report, write and pitch stories.
When a reporter job became available, Griffin applied through the Maryland-Delaware-DC Press Association and it led to her landing a full-time job with the newspaper.
Griffin's main piece of advice for new and prospective students is to make connections, which is in part what she attributes to finding her footing in the field as a reporter. “Try new things because you never know what you might end up enjoying or how something can be incorporated into your intended career path," said Griffin.
For students interested in journalism and being a reporter, Krystal implores: “Don't be afraid to jump right into it. Everyone has to start somewhere. Everyone has to go through the experience of getting their first interview. It might even surprise you how willing people are to talk to a stranger when you show them you're interested in their perspective."
