“What do you want to be when you grow up?” Growing up I have always had different careers in mind. As a kid I was sure I wanted to become an actor, but then I kind of lost interest. From then on out every idea I had for a career revolved around the media. Current interestS of mine include directing, producing, and reporting. News is an option of a career because it is something that appears to be interactive, fast-pace, and fun. Those are qualities in a job that I want. I want everyday to be different. Any reporter could tell you although the career can be fun, New can also a very challenging job. To test the waters of this career, I took Broadcast Journalism last year during the fall semester. I loved the class and enjoyed my professor who is also the morning reporter for NBC in Austin. I learned so much from that class. My first news package was inspired by the University of Texas shooting that happened last year. I enjoyed created it. I was able to see first hand how stressful and cut throat the job actually is! I had to capture film, schedule interviews, prepare questions, and edit the story. I remember running around non-stop! News is definitely something I can see myself doing in the future for a while. I’m just waiting for the right opportunity. I hope you enjoy my news package and remember it was my first.
