Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Maria Camila Garcia, Social Media Editor – The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
Hello Everyone, my name is Maria Camila Garcia and I am a junior at the College of St Scholastica. I am a Chemistry major with a minor in math. My intend year of graduation is 2016 and I started being a NSR social media editor this spring of 2015. I am an international student from Bogota, capitol of Colombia. In the future I want to become a chemical engineering and maybe work for a company related to biofuels or in a company that works with green chemistry.
I decided to became part of the NSR because I think it will be a great opportunity for me to share some of the experiences I have had here in the US as an international student. By coming from a different background I have learned so much from this culture and also more about my identity as a Colombian. Besides, I would like to have the chance to learn more about the experiences of different people in other countries as it has happened to me. Furthermore, I would like to share some more about my culture and my beliefs to the readers of the NSR.

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.
