I chose to study journalism because first and foremost, I’m a storyteller.
Studying journalism allows me to fuse my two biggest passions together into one career.
Working as a journalist would allow me to do what I love: writing, photography and storytelling. The ability to work on multiple platforms and the curiosity to discover new things makes me the perfect personality for this job.
I’ve always loved reading magazines and even made my own as a kid, but I didn’t know how I could make a successful career out of that.
Journalism gives me the opportunity to meet all kinds of amazing people, interested in sharing their life story with me.
Journalism is exciting.
It’s always changing, whether it’s the type of news stories I’m working on or the people I meet–no part is ever boring.
As someone who gets bored of things easily, I realized that by studying journalism, I could do almost anything and everything I love to do.
Journalism is not a dying industry. People will always need someone to write about what’s going on in the world, whether it’s online or in print.
