Hi ! My name is AQSA SIMON Fast forward to present day and I still live on a quiet street in the suburbs, just the way I like it. I’m a journalist I enjoy my job and the whole team there is just wonderful. I am passionate about writing, but also just as passionate about reading and learning. I suppose that’s what got me into the world of journalism, and why I love it so. Knowledge is truly a gift, I believe. And there’s always more out there for me to obtain, it is moments like that when i can really feel the positive impact that i'm having. It reminds me of when I was young and in school, and of the teachers who helped to motivate me, and helped me to grow into who I am today, and the gratitude I have for them. It’s hard to describe what it’s like to finally have discovered my passion. After four years of journalism classes, internships, articles and editing, I’m pleased to find that it’s only begun to whet my appetite. For me, journalism is more than a career or a major; it’s even more than a passion. Being a journalist is my identity, my DAD ,MOM & BRO. It’s who I am, and who I can’t wait to be for the rest of my life. As a young journalist, I am fascinated by opportunities where I can use multimedia to enhance a story. Although writing is my main method of storytelling, I think a I should be able to cross barriers and use as many platforms as possible. I've found photo to be a way to combine my love of the newsworthy and the artistic. I've still got a lot to learn, but I'd have to say I'm hooked.
