For my profile proposal I plan on writing about a grunge designer named Tiki Doll. She's interesting because she is a local designer who is slowly gaining national audience, and for the fact that she only hires models that are comfortable with their bodies (regardless of their size). I think she would make an interesting profile because she has had an interesting life (single motherhood, went back to college, etc.) and is making her way successfully through a difficult field.
I'm going to delve into the life of an Oklahoman Muslim. The person I had in mind moved over the summer to Louisiana, but she is going to get me in touch with a candidate. I want to know what it's like to be a Muslim in Oklahoma, the trials and tribulations.
For my profile story, I would like to write about Megan McGeary, the baton twirler for the Pride of Oklahoma. I would like to know how she got interested in this hobby and how it feels to perform as a soloist in front of thousands of people each game day. I still have yet to talk to her about this, I wanted to pitch this story idea first before contacting her.
I would like to profile a ballet dancer. I would found out what it takes to be in a competitive major. Also, what kind of physical and mental toll dancing takes on a body. In addition, how does dancing affect their perception of academics and school.
For my profile story, I would like to write about an international student called Samantha Wong from Hong Kong. She has moved to different countries so many times. I don't know her so well, but I think she has some wonderful experiences to tell me about all these different countries she has been to.
