I'm sure most Whyville Times Writers have all set goals and achievements within journalism, to which they hope to aspire to in the near future. In this particular workforce, journalism, you aspire to do your best and deliver the news as it happens with the most up-to-date facts and statistics on hand. This may include going on location or digging around for that hard-hitting story. Though, a job in journalism might be a little too far into the future for some.
As most of you don't know, I was recently hired by my district's newspaper as a journalist. My district covers a vast majority of cities and towns within my state. The newspaper that I work for has won many prestigious awards and has been commended several times by higher authorities. Unfortunately I can not release the name of the newspaper on Whyville as that breaches Whyville's set guidelines to not release personal information that can lead to your location.
I started off through an amazing program here in Australia that works with newspapers to adopt the concept of Junior/Student Reporters. In my particular district I was fortunate enough to have had access to this program through my school. So by the start of last year I was up and writing for this Student Reporter program. I went on location, interviewed a series of interesting people and celebrities, visited amazing locations, met senior journalists and most importantly had fun.
