Hello! My name is Elizabeth Shell and I am a first-year graduate student in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Phoenix, Ariz. In December 2009 I will graduate with a Master’s Degree in Journalism.

This blog will showcase my portfolio and updates throughout the program, and perhaps highlight some random musings.

My professional interests include writing about current international affairs and specifically about the Middle East, human rights, the environment and personal health.
