Meet Our NSR Student Editors – Amy North, Social Media Editor — The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
Amy North, NSR Social Media Editor. Major/Minor: Nursing with a minor in Biology. Institutional Affiliation: Student at the College of St. Scholastica. Intended Graduation Year: 2017. Year Starting with NSR: 2014
I grew up in the town of White Bear Lake, Minnesota and started attending the College of St. Scholastica in the fall of 2013. I just finished my sophomore year and first semester as a nursing student and plan to graduate in 2017. After I graduate I hope to work as a Registered Nurse in a hospital to gain some experience, and then get my certification to be an obstetric nurse. It is my dream to live in Seattle one day, a city I fell in love with the first time I visited in 2006, but I also hope to have the opportunity to travel around the world and continue to experience different cultures firsthand.
I am volunteering with the North Star Reports in order to share my experiences with others. When I have the opportunity to travel and experience a different culture, I think it is beneficial both for myself and others to share those experiences. It allows for for me to reflect upon my experiences and for those reading to either see something from a new perspective or to relate to what is being shared. From writing just one article and seeing the reader’s comments I have felt even more fortunate for my experiences and I have learned how universal an experience can be. I am very grateful for my experience working with the North Star Reports and look forward to continue sharing my experiences.

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.
