My Career and Future Plans

The American Dream

I'm living the American dream, because of the hard work and sacrifice by many great people before me. I would like to thank all those people who grew up with very little, yet were able to do so much. Thanks to them I'm a direct beneficiary of the American dream, because going up in my neighborhood all I could do was dream. Dream that one day I could make it out of here and go study at one of the finest public institutions in the U.S. like the University of Florida. The dream has lead me through a rough and difficult path that seemed impossible, but now more and more each day that dream seems more like a feasible reality. Achieving the dream of becoming a professional would be one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. Success to me is not measured by wealth or power, but rather by integrity, dignity, and respect.

Reporting

Reporting news is an interesting field that fascinates me. I have always loved mystery or suspense movies and books where the main character is running around lost trying to figure out what is going on? I almost always solve the mystery before the movie ends and I feel investigative journalism is the same. Although I like getting to the bottom of a story I would prefer to report out of Washington, D.C. and uncover some of the bureaucratic red tape used by our politicians to cover up their devious and deceitful policies. As a journalist I must learn not to believe things as they are or might seem. Although I believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt I also strongly believe that one must always verify.

Writing and Journalism

I am a journalism student, but I'm no editor. Writing or reporting on politics for some major publication would definitely be a dream come true for me. However I am not a spelling and grammar freak, and these types of mistakes always seem to sneak into my papers, and then I spend days looking for someone to correct them for me. I can most definitely imagine myself as a reporter, working my way up through a newspaper or magazine and hopefully I'll end up working on the side for some major cable news network.

Politics and Law

Politics and Law are the two fields that I find to be the most interesting and I would love nothing more than to be involved in any one of the fields as my career. The main reason I chose to do journalism is that if I don't become a lawyer or some kind of politician at least I get to report on them. While I am ambitious enough to want to become a politician and serve the public I know that it is not a field that one can just work your way up too. Therefore, I am much more focused on becoming a journalist first and then maybe I'll go to law school in the future.

Traveling

I would love to travel the world at some point in my life, but it is not my life's calling. I would like to see the world as I get older and learn about life in foreign cultures. I've traveled outside the U.S. before to places like Cancun, Mexico and I've been to the Dominican Republic on a vacation, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I would love to visit France, England, Italy and Spain before I am too old to really enjoy it.
