Broadcasting- My Favorite Media
Initially, when I thought about what I wanted to do with my future, I had no idea what journalism was. I was looking for a glamorous job- something I could be pampered for and be in the public eye without too much criticism. Since I enjoy speaking and I want to voice my opinion, my then 14 year-old-mind came to the idea that I would make a great news anchor. Well, this was a marvelous plan until I found out about hectic hours and the standing in the middle of terrible storms I'd rather be taking shelter from. So, I simply dropped the idea and started brainstorming my other areas of interest.
After much thought and the development of more than hatred for math and any career that need it, I stumbled upon journalism again. When I found out about the USM Journalism Workshop, I embraced the idea as a great opportunity to really explore journalism and see if it was right for me.
On the second day of the workshop, fate seemed to pull me back into broadcasting. I really enjoyed being on camera- even though my words occasionally were mixed up. It's a very creative and fun area to work in. Though I may not pursue the top spot as a famous news anchor, I hope to fit broadcasting somewhere into my journalism career.
