I moved to Alaska after constantly joking on how they must have no fires with it being so cold. You see I once wanted to be a firefighter after an imaginary friend of mine perished in a fire when I was a young boy. Once I got to Alaska I not only fell in love with the residents, a loving Jewish community, and also a new found love of Journalism. I was hooked after one semester working at the student paper and changed my major. In my journalistic studies I have had many opportunities that I am very appreciative of such as conferences in Miami and traveling the state to report on local stories. It was during this time I had become ashamed of myself, realizing I had never been interested in the news prior to this. After a few discussions with friends I noticed they had no idea of the news in the world either. I am a frequent follower of a few different news sources. Due to bias I must personally search for the truth. As a journalist I feel the only way to do so if to place myself in the situation. If I could earn a living being a journalist in the Middle East I would have the opportunity to report bias free for all people being oppressed. Being an Arab Jew I feel it’s my duty to do so. I hope shining light on the truth would perhaps bring peace to the Levant.
