Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “The basis of our government being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”
We NEED Journalism. It is imperative to our society. How else would we know what is currently occurring and evolving around us? As a journalist one will build up communications skills, deriving from researching, writing, interviewing and thinking critically.
I’m very proud of my major, that being print journalism, because it is a subject that i possess an extreme passion for. Although i do receive unnecessary comments from others regarding my future finances, i’ve learned to brush it off because if i do something i really and truly love, the amount of money i earn won’t matter.
