SF Examiner Student Interns from SF State Struggle with Pandemic while Reporting on It

Monday, May 18, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER -- Throw in a once-in-a-century global pandemic, and this semester has become perhaps the strangest and most challenging one many students will ever experience.

“I feel cheated but know I have no control over it,” said M.J. Johnson, a graduating San Francisco State University student who laments not having an official graduation ceremony.

“Because it’s taken me so long to get this degree, I’ve just put so much into that last moment walking to that stage in those robes, all my family with me,” said Johnson, who grew up in Japan and has family in various locations.
