As the Greene experience comes to an end, I am so grateful for all that I have learned during my time here this week.
Not only did I learn more about journalism overall, but I learned all of the different career paths that I can go with it.
I am leaving here with such a deep love for journalism. Each second that I have been fortunate enough to take a seat in this elite program’s newsroom, I have done my very best to absorb every last word uttered to me peers, as well as professional and seasoned journalists.
This week gave me a true look into what college will be like and at first. I was a little nervous to be away from home for the first time, but the warm and friendly atmosphere among all of us in the newsroom all day and back at the dorm at night made being away much easier than I anticipated, though I obviously missed my family.
I am walking away from this experience with so many new friends with whom I share an interest, and I am so thankful for that. I am now much more confident in my work and I can truly see a possible future for me in this field.
I plan on attempting to get my school to start some sort of publication at Connetquot, whether online or print, this upcoming year.
I was so inspired this week by everyone in my presence to become a better journalist in any way that I could.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I will be forever thankful for all of the opportunities that it has presented to me. I will never forget my time here with the Greene Team and all that I have learned.
One day, if I make it in the world of journalism, I will owe it all to everyone who has helped me get my start this week.
