“You mean they are paying me for this?”
Think about this: we meet terrific people, travel the world (OK, at least our country), and experience more in a year than most folks do in several lifetimes. We never know who we are going to meet, where we are going to go, or what we are going to learn.
But journalism is much more than that. Reporters, producers, writers, anchors, editors, and photojournalists actually have a chance to contribute to society and help people on a daily basis.
A career where you get to enlighten, encourage, and inform.
