When I was growing up, I was desperate to know everything. Every time my mom or dad did something, I had to know why. Every secret that I learned someone was withholding from me gave me the greatest desire to get the true facts. I wanted knowledge and I wanted to learn about extraordinary people.
When I was in eighth grade, I decided to take a journalism course as one of my electives. I loved the teacher and she taught me that writing could actually be fun. I went on a field trip that year to tour a local news studio and watch a behind-the-scenes production of its morning broadcast television. I immediately fell in love with the idea of working in such an interesting environment that catered to my nosy personality.
After realizing I wanted to possibly create a career in journalism, I took classes in my high school’s television production department every year. It was always my favorite part of the day and I loved getting the inside scoops on all of the current news around the school. I loved learning how to edit packages and stories in broadcast television and working in a live studio with the pressure of a time crunch. When it came time to decide what my major would be in college, there was no question that I wanted to study journalism.
I am currently enrolled as a sophomore at the University of Utah. My desire to be a journalist has grown deeper every year as I continue to take classes for it, and I hope to further my experience in the field at every opportunity that may arise.
