Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Ada Moreno, Assistant Editor – The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
Ada Moreno, NSR Assistant Editor. Majors: History and Global, Culture, and Language Studies, Minor: Political Science, Institutional affliation: The College of St. Scholastica, Intended graduation year: Spring 2016, Year starting with NSR and/or MGJ: Fall 2013
I am an international student from El Salvador, about to begin my senior year of college in the Unites States. Currently I reside in Duluth, Minnesota, but will be spending Fall 2015 in Washington, DC studying Sustainable Development. As a citizen of El Salvador, a small developing nation in Central America, learning about my country’s history and its place in the world has been very important to me. As a result, after finishing my undergraduate studies I intend to go to graduate school to pursue studies in International Development.
I deeply enjoy learning about different cultures, traditions, and philosophies, and because of this, volunteering in the North Star Reports has really helped in expanding my knowledge of the world and the communities within it. I would love to serve as a resource for others who wish to contribute with their own stories and perspectives to the overall global and historical connections the NSR makes. And as an assistant editor, it has been very rewarding to see how meaningful sharing these stories can be for its writers, and how much of an impact they are able to have. As a position that constantly allows you to challenge common held notions of places and others, and help in sharing global perspectives, valuing and contributing to a forum that fosters an enviorment of learning such as this one is very important.

The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy, The College of St. Scholastica and the scholarly Middle Ground Journal’s online learning community and outreach program with undergraduate and K-12 classes around the world. The North Star Reports has flourished since 2012. For a brief summary, please see the American Historical Association’s Perspectives on History, at:
The North Star Reports publishes edited essays from our students, particularly from those who are currently stationed, or will soon be stationed abroad. Students have reported from Mongolia, Southern China, Shanghai, northeastern China, The Netherlands, Tanzania, Ireland, England, Finland, Russia, and Haiti. We also have students developing reviews of books, documentaries, and films, and analysis of current events from around the world. We will post their dispatches, and report on their interactions with the North Star Reports students and teachers. We thank The Department of History and Politics and the School of Arts and Letters of The College of St. Scholastica for their generous financial support for The North Star Reports and The Middle Ground Journal.
