I am pitching and completing stories with almost pinpoint accuracy, not to mention managing a unique college workload, with online classes top-heavy. Oh, and of course my spreadsheet with the list of journalism internships, scholarships and the like.
Alot of it is confidence, as dedicated as I am, I hit the rain sometimes as well. It could be a missed story I could have reported on or one of those rejection emails - but rather then grab an umbrella, I simply work harder. You don't need an umbrella with a fiery passion.
Part of that aggressiveness is the new year, nothing to lose mentality. Why wait?
