Alumnus Perspective

Gabriel TalleyI worked as the podcast producer at the Alabamian during my final college semester, and it feels like an understatement to say that working there genuinely changed my life. I was able to apply my English skills in a more personal way, listening and learning from the perspectives of others and diving more into topics I have really loved. Working now as a documentarian, I think that working at the Alabamian gave me a clear sense of what was possible for me, combining my interests in journalism and English into something I could easily see myself pursuing after college. – Gabriel Talley, Documentarian B.A. ‘23
