A little bit about the author:

I appreciate the ways in which J-school and a career in journalism provide a platform for obtaining a diverse and extensive skill set for presenting news, i.e. through the internet, television, written mediums, radio broadcasting, etc. as well as the many opportunities it presents to learn the variety of methods through which news can be constructed and presented (i.e. storify, a multimedia piece, interactive pieces online, livefyre, storycrawler, etc.). In addition, as I am passionate about knowledge and reading, I enjoy that journalism is a career that presents the opportunity to continuously learn; journalists know a little bit about a lot and are always researching and reading to learn more. There is limitless knowledge waiting to be obtained!
