Storytellers. At the end of the day, that is the heart of what journalists are. We look at a situation and figure out how to best present it in a coherent, creative way. It’s a public duty, but I think for the most part people forget that it’s an art.
There is something beautiful and interesting about the way a journalist puts a story together. There’s a talent involved, whether it's for print or broadcast; it’s putting together the pieces of a puzzle. Researching, learning, arranging, rewriting and reorganizing until the perfect flow is mastered and the story is told in the best possible way.
For me, everyday is a new topic to explore, research and to gain new perspectives through interviews. I always want to learn more but most importantly, I just want to tell stories.
