Starving children in Africa, homeless families in one’s neighborhood, humble people doing extraordinary things. All these people have a story to tell, but may not always have a voice. Journalists give a voice to those who are too quiet for others to hear. They tell stories that would otherwise go unnoticed and forgotten, and they document historic events that shake the earth and shape the future.
There are people all over the world that have something to say but cannot say it. Like the common expression, opinions are like noses, everyone has one; journalists help people voice those opinions. They risk their lives to give a voice to under-represented people in foreign countries and in local communities. Without journalists, important societal issues would not be brought to public attention.
Attending university in New York City provides the platform to achieve my dreams, as the media capital of the world. I hope to earn an internship with the news division at a major media company in the spring to act as my opening to the industry. I will naturally show my passion for this type of work. After graduation, I hope to join a news division and start my career there, to give the people a voice.
From giving a voice to those who are not able to speak, to telling the stories, feelings, and opinions of many people, while also recording the historical events, I will work in journalism. Without journalists, every moment would just be another speck in time.
