Danielle McKinney, the fall 2019 co-editor-in-chief of the Express knew she was meant for journalism when she signed up for her first-ever journalism class spring 2018. She had always had an interest in journalism, but it wasn’t something that she pursued right away.

“I tried all of these things and wasn’t really feeling a passion there,” says McKinney. “You know when you get that feeling of ‘This is where I’m supposed to be and what I’m supposed to be doing,’ that was totally the feeling I got and continue to have every day that I’m in class.”

McKinney started at the Express as a staff writer and in her second semester, she became the news editor. In her new role as co-editor-in-chief, she hopes to inspire and encourage newcomers to the Express.

“I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned so far with others,” says McKinney. “The journalism department at City College has really helped me grow my skill set and I know there will be lots more learning this semester.”

As she pursues her career in journalism, she hopes to explore every avenue. McKinney has always been fascinated by radio broadcasting and her dream job is a career with Capital Public Radio where she would be able to share the news and spread awareness of what’s going on in the world.

Rose Vega, the fall 2019 co-editor-in-chief of the Express has been a journalism major at City College for a little over two years. Vega’s past internships at Access Local TV and at Sacramento Magazine have allowed her to explore the different aspects of journalism, including podcasting, videos and article writing. 

Vega’s favorite parts of journalism is writing and podcasting.

“I love hearing peoples’ stories,” she says. “I love talking to people, and getting to find out that interesting thing about them, and being able to tell someones’ story for them.”

Along with writing news and feature stories, Vega does poetry and creative writing too. Vega has been published in City College’s Mainline magazine, as well as the Express. She says she enjoys working as an editor and seeing the growth in her staff, particularly watching “caterpillars blossom into butterflies.”

Vega is also optimistic about her future in the changing digital landscape.

Sara Nevis, the fall 2019 photo editor of the Express, recalls that her interest in photography began in high school.  

“I really enjoyed photography in high school, but my life took a different turn,” says Nevis.

It wasn’t until she helped a friend who was photographing a wedding that it brought photography back into the picture.

“I remembered how much I actually enjoyed it,” Nevis says, recalling her early journey with photography.

Nevis treated photography as a hobby, saying that she never really thought anything of it. She began to take photography more seriously after taking Randy Allen’s photojournalism class, saying it changed everything for her.

“Of course. Sports, having played for so many years, it’s nice to still be apart of it,” Nevis answered without hesitation when asked if she has a favorite type of subject to shoot.

After high school, Sara entered the United States military and served as an air traffic controller in the Air Force for four years. When she isn’t snapping pictures, Nevis enjoys spending time with her six-year-old daughter.

“It’s nice to see how much they enjoy it and strive to get better each picture. I look forward to seeing their growth.”
