I’m Beatriz Costa-Lima, one of SPLC’s summer interns. I’m a junior at the University of Missouri majoring in convergence photojournalism.
After years of art school, I thought I was going to be a painter. But I discovered journalism in high school and I found that I preferred notepads and DSLRs to canvases and oil paints.
For over five years I worked in some kind of student media. Most recently I worked at The Maneater student newspaper as city, state and nation editor and as a senior staff photographer, writer and designer.
