FSPA was a great experience this year and I hope to build on future successes in my senior year.
The quality of workshops were excellent and I met professionals who knew what they were doing as they provided valuable resources which I hope to carry over into my future career as a journalist.
The most influential professional I met was University of Florida student and ESPN photographer Stephen Johnson. He opened my eyes to journalism even more so with his "unique" style. While the dinner was sub-par at best, our newspaper took home the biggest awards.
I am looking forward to 2011 as I hope to bring even more success to our paper and better myself as a journalist.
