Four years. It all flew by way too fast.
I sit here finishing up one of the last assignments of my college education. I cannot help but think about the dream that I lived in for these past few years.
Growing up, college was a goal very far from my reality. My parents barely finished the sixth grade and I had no idea what I was getting myself into as I Googled how to fill out my FAFSA. Despite the struggles my parents went through to seek their American Dream, I finally realized that my happiness was their ultimate goal.
Storytelling. It’s what I absolutely love. I want to give a voice to those individuals in the community who otherwise wouldn’t have their thoughts heard without my help.
The University of Florida is home to The Center for Media Innovation and Research. I am forever grateful to have had the privilege to be trained in a part of this center, otherwise known as the Innovation News Center.
The newsroom has been my home for the past couple years. From scurrying to make slot for WUFT ‘s First at Five newscast to staying up until 5am trying to finish a news package for a tv class.
The struggle is real but the memories made with classmates are truly are priceless.
