Why did I become a journalist?
I’ve always loved getting to know people and listen their stories. Long before I could read or write, I was doing little “projects” for my siblings teachers. When I started to going to school myself, assignments that involved making news articles and editing layouts were always the assignments I chose.
Networking and building relationships is an amazing part of it as well. Learning how the people are connected in this world is a mind boggling and fascinating thing, especially when you get to see it first hand. Whenever I’m not working on articles or doing interviews, I really miss that world.
I prefer real books to electronic books but in this modern day, I own more ebooks than real ones.
Many things in this world fascinate me and I want to discover them all. Different foods, different places, different cultures. Don’t give me the everyday, give me something new to experience and you won’t be able to stop me.
I wave, smile, chat and like strangers. The best conversations I’ve had have been with people I just met. I think the worst thing people can do is fear the person walking down the street. A stranger is just a friend you haven’t made yet.
