Erik Quam, Writer

I am Erik Quam, a senior at Minnetonka High School and a member of the Digital Journalism VANTAGE strand. VANTAGE is an exciting program because of the number of real world opportunities it gives students. The reason I chose Digital Journalism is because of how relevant it is to our everyday lives. I love how we study things people see every day, like advertisements on social media, articles about current stories, and trending videos to see why and how they’re effective.

My goals of covering various content and seeings how topics interconnect are fulfilled in this course. As a student, I enjoy a lot of different subjects in school. Digital Journalism adds to this by interspersing a lot of different elements of writing and producing, whether it be how to tell a story, or what kinds of camera cuts attract an audience.

Outside of school, I’m involved in music and sports. I love to listen to music in addition to learning different instruments. Through my love of the outdoors, I find enjoyment through skiing in the winter with my dad and playing Ultimate Frisbee in the spring.
