If I could, I would be a journalist by day and a musician by night. Journalism is unique in that it affords me the opportunity to be a listening ear for those that I interview in addition to directing the attention of my readership to issues that the community must address. I think it is fitting that Superman is a journalist in his spare time, for journalists are real world superheroes. They have the power to defend the rights of individuals and societies. When injustice arises, journalists are on the front lines, calling it into the light so that it may be brought to justice. However, when the story is written, and the press stops pressing, I will run to join in the joyous creation of music. Music brings people together, puts smiles on their faces, a spring in their step, and inspires them to create more, to let their minds soar through the vast realms of human creativity. Plato says that, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” I feel that this is an apt description of the impact of music and I desire to be a part of its impact. My passion is for the well-being of people, whether it be on a communal or individual level. The fields of journalism and music allow me to improve and defend the quality of life on both levels.
