Telling stories growing up was natural for me, but with a visual and aural focus. It could be through dance, trumpet, or even writing. I don’t just hear music; I see it. It is more than just eighth notes and dramatic crescendos; it is the war and fall of a Russian empire and a soldier’s last march to battle. A dance isn’t just a mixture of glissade derrières and arabesques, it is a passionate lovers pas de deux. And words, offer a rhythm that must tango across the tongue and resonate in the ears. Broadcast/multimedia journalism is the pure story-telling concoction of visuals and writing which offers a refreshing take on the economy, arts, or unique people of society. I am not content to settle into the 9 to 5 corporate prison of gray cubicles and buzzing fluorescents. Life is not factory lines. Life moves, changes, varies, and offers unexpected textures. This is the life I seek in journalism. I refuse to accept a stale belief that what I know at this very moment is all I need to know the rest of my life.
