Jane Engleman, a member affiliated with the Painted Brain Academy, allowed me to interview her on the field of journalism. Jane Engleman has been writing since a child. To be concise, she began writing in 1979. Although Jane doesn’t identify as a journalist/reporter she’s intrigued by cultural diversity, taking “desperate adventures” at ages 18-21.
As a self proclaimed poet, Jane has had 3 books published. She may at times be affected by criticism; however, she concentrates her focus of attention to children that are battered and abused. Jane is a native of Navajo, New Mexico. Within the interviews that she gives to others, Jane aims to establish relationships with artists, “to learn things together.”
The Painted Brain Academy is a program that educates members on photojournalism tactics, journalism, and social media literacy.
