As It Was Contributor

Dmitri Shockey is a high school junior attending Logos Public Charter School. He has spent the past 14 years living in the Applegate valley and regularly listening to JPR, particularly enjoying As It Was stories.  Dmitri also attends Rogue Community College part time and after high school hopes to start a career as a foreign correspondent. With both of his parents already contributing to As It Was on a regular basis he started writing in the summer of 2013. Volunteering with As It Was has also given Dmitri a unique opportunity to glimpse what a career in journalism will be like.
