Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Michaela Campbell, Social Media Editor. The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy, at NorthStarReports.org and facebook.com/NorthStarReports
Name: Michaela Campbell, Graduation Year: 2017, Major/Minor: Psychology/ Political Science (intended), Hometown: Two Harbors, Minnesota.
I think that picking a quote to define you is a good way to give people a sense of who you are in one sentence. A quote that I think best defines me comes from Eleanor Roosevelt, “Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized anyways”. I believe that the path most frequently traveled is not always the right path, which is why I feel this statement by Roosevelt resonates with me so much. I enjoy the simple things in life: creating lasting memories with those I care for, exploring the world around me, and living out life in a positive manner.
I am passionate about making a difference in the world both near and far, and I am just one of many who feel this way. I think writing for NSR will greatly influence the way I interpret the world, and will give me new insight as to how others think about the events that are occurring throughout the world. In the future, I hope to be involved in making positive decisions within the local and national community, and although I am not entirely sure where I am headed, I know I am on the right path to finding out.

The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy (http://NorthStarReports.org) is a student edited and student authored open access publication centered around the themes of global and historical connections. Our abiding philosophy is that those of us who are fortunate enough to receive an education and to travel our planet are ethically bound to share our knowledge with those who cannot afford to do so. Therefore, creating virtual and actual communities of learning between college and K-12 classes are integral to our mission. In five semesters we have published 200 articles covering all habitable continents and a variety of topics ranging from history and politics, food and popular culture, to global inequities to complex identities. These articles are read by K-12 and college students. Our student editors and writers come from all parts of the campus, from Nursing to Biology, Physical Therapy to Business, and remarkably, many of our student editors and writers have long graduated from college. We also have writers and editors from other colleges and universities. In addition to our main site, we also curate a Facebook page dedicated to annotated news articles selected by our student editors (http://www.facebook.com/NorthStarReports). This is done by an all volunteer staff. We have a frugal cash budget, and we donate much of our time and talent to this project. We are sponsored by St. Scholastica’s Department of History and Politics and by the scholarly Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies (http://theMiddleGroundJournal.org).
