My first and last byline

(05/13/20 4:00am)

I wasn’t going to write a senior column. I thought my senior slideshow would suffice, summing up the entirety of my experience as a Chronicle photographer. But while I love visual forms of expression—one of my degrees is in visual arts—I wanted to share my reflections through words as well. This is the first (and likely only) time you will see my name on the Chronicle website for a piece of writing; in four years, I haven’t written anything longer than a one-sentence photo caption. So here it is, my first and last byline.

May I have your attention, please?

(05/08/20 4:23am)

When I was younger and everything seemed possible, I wanted to be a comedian. I practiced on my classmates, shouting jokes across the cafeteria and schoolyard, and my teachers sent me home with report cards that declared, “Nina is doing great academically but can’t bring herself to stop talking in class.” How could I? I loved the attention of my peers, their peals of laughter and wide grins, and I wanted it all for myself, all the time.

It’s all about the climb

(05/08/20 4:00am)

I dislocated my knee sophomore year. A few weeks of hobbling from Few Dorm to Science drive later, I was finally certain that I could make my way up the three flights of stairs up to the Chronicle office. Huffing and puffing, I opened the door to 301 Flowers and, to the tune of the fellow staffers typing away on the Office couches and the 5pm Chapel bells audible through the open windows, I was met with an overwhelming feeling—completely unfamiliar to my time at Duke until that point. I felt at home.
