Diary of an RI Intern: Writing for The Straits Times

For our Diary of an RI Intern column, we interview Miranda Yeo, a J3 who interned at the Straits Times Newsdesk from March to June 2012. We find out whether her initial interest in journalism persisted after a challenging yet enriching internship, where she had a Hougang resident set his dogs on her while requesting for an interview!
