My last few days at my internship were really great! The reporter I worked most closely with, Alejandra, took me to lunch and introduced me to another reporter from a different organization. It was really cool to have the opportunity to meet a reporter from a larger print and ask her questions about her job. Ultimately, having the opportunity to work at the BGA and work with Alejandra was a really cool opportunity. Although some of my research was monotonous work, it was fulfilling to see the impact of my work come into fruition with the publication of the story on multiple news sources with my name in the by-line. From this experience though, I have come to the decision that journalism may not be for me (specifically print journalism). I would prefer to do more field work, working with people, and be more of an advocate than work to be an impartial, unbiased reference. This internship helped me understand myself better, and gave me insight into the direction I want to steer my life.
