Dear to whom it may concern, I would love to be in Honors English 2 (10th) and Honors World History (10th) as they are my two favorite subjects and I am the most passionate about them. I am currently in Humanities Academy as a freshman and my goal is to keep up the challenging classes because not only do I love to be challenged, but these subjects make me excited to learn. School comes very easy to me and I love to learn so much, so I know I can handle the tasks thrown my way during these courses. My personal goals I wish to achieve are to keep improving my strengths and making sure I am learning to my fullest abilities. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always said I want to be a famous author when I grow up. Now as I am getting older,
Northwestern has one of the most prestigious journalism programs in the country, and I am confident that Northwestern is the school that will allow me to become the best journalist I can be. This will be done with the help of the programs and clubs offered at Northwestern.
Ever since I was seven I knew I wanted to be be a Broadcast Journalist, I also knew that I was an exceptional writer. Therefore, after graduating from The Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications at Hampton University with a Bachelors of Arts in Journalism in the fall of 2019, I plan to return back to my hometown of Charlotte, NC, and begin to change lives through news and media. After gaining experience and advise on my reporting style, I plan to inspire other young girls to embrace the gift of writing by starting a non-profit organization that teaches basic writing and journalism skills. My ultimate goal is to take everything I have learned apply it as I work as a White House Correspondent.
In the realm of high school journalism, striking a balance between the First Amendment rights of students and the educational purpose of a school can be challenging. As stated in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District, “it can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate” (Tinker), but with this statement comes several caveats that place limits on what a student journalist can publish in school newspapers. These limits present challenges to the scenario in which the principal of a school has exercised editorial control over an article I have written about football hazing, asking for a player’s comments to be removed and a prepared statement by the coach added (Sarapin). Taking certain court decisions into consideration, it may be in the best interest for me
Hey, guys! I'm Nicole and I'm a communications major; I couldn't remember the book that I loved as a child.
Why are you still here? Don’t you think it’s enough that you have brought me down to the cold ground and now you are here to laugh at me aren’t you. Or maybe you are here because you felt guilty for once in your pathetic life. That’s it. You finally have hit the point where you finally feel guilty or at least realize what you have been doing, but did it really have to come to this for you to realize it?
Many events come and go before many citizens are aware of them. This is where journalism and photography come to play. Journalism and photography allow for current events in other parts of the world to be shown to the public for awareness. Some of these events such as the time during the Arab Spring, where revolutions and protests broke out across the Middle East and North Africa, allowed for citizens to get an idea of what is going on in that particular part of the country. A world without journalism cause much of the people to be in the shadow of the unknown. But journalism creates a chance for political impact. Journalism and photography will bring transparency and awareness to the public eye leading to protests and a need for change,
My initial interest in the EMBA was piqued through a number of my friends and colleagues who are graduates of the program. They have each described for me the benefits of the wide range of courses offered and the impact each have had on their lives. These stories were truly inspiring.
Journalism is the type of writing that investigates and includes lots of research of good and bad stories and some events. Journalists tend to write news stories that people should know about and haven’t already heard. Journalism comes in different categories; some are reporters, writers, editors, and photographers. People who tend to like journalism are those who love language and enjoy writing and reading, are called journalist; they work as reporters at newspapers, magazines, websites, TV stations, and radio stations. Good journalists love to read and want to find out what is going on around them and the world. They write short and long stories as they must write true stories. Journalists write stories that are from real people and they make the stories real too. People are not interested in reading newspapers now as much as they used to long time ago. These days’ people carry news on their iPods, cell phones, laptops, and more. They can even watch them on TV. A long time ago people knew the news through newspapers or the rich would have a radio which was the only way to know what is going in the world, but now news is everywhere.
Journalism plays a major role in aiding democracy and helping it function. It can shape the way we view policies or how we view a particular candidate. Unfortunately, this can be sometimes forgotten or overlooked in the midst of partisan debate, government shutdowns and the new insurgence of “fake news”. If we were able to put the absurdity of these issues to the side and focus on the real impact of true raw journalism, we can open our eyes and mind to the impact news has on all our political views. Let us look at the impact and effects that journalism is currently having on last year’s election and the political climate around the world. One could say that journalism provides the public with governmental transparency and provides checks
In a contemporary society, the role of journalism is a varied one that covers many different aspects of people’s lives. As more and more outlets spring up around the world, many more stories are able to be covered by different outlets, and this means that journalism takes on a more and more important role in a contemporary society. Much of our lives centre on political and social happenings, and journalistic outlets are the public’s way of finding all the information on these event. Journalism also provides us with a way of finding out which of these stories are important and deserve our attention, and which stories can be ignored. The important role of journalism can be well observed in the recent coverage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) in both New Zealand and around the world. This is a ground breaking economic deal, and holds a great deal of importance for the 800 million citizens of the countries involved, as well as the rest of the world. With worldwide coverage of this deal, it is inevitable that different types of reporting occurs, and that different outlets will provide different accounts. With so many different journalism outlets around the world and locally, many have to have a way of standing out from the crowd. This means that some extremely different coverage of very similar stories can occur. However it can also simply be down to different ownership, differing political views, and different socio-economic environments. Two outlets with
Recent events such as the tsunami disaster (where blogs helped in covering the enormous size of the story), the war in Iraq (where blogs help to present both opinions of all parties involved), the Dan Rather's scandal, a CBS Evening News anchor who reported as authentic a series of forged documents about George W. Bush (where blogs were highly instrumental in exposing him) have all contributed to the growing popularity of citizen journalism. So, why is there a recent growth in popularity of citizen journalism? Is it because of the scandals that has eroded the credibility of traditional journalism or is out of touch with today's media landscape? And does any of it eventually mean the decline of traditional
Historically, professional journalism has been built around two fundamentals: visual and textual. While numbers have played a role in journalism as well, journalists have constantly downplayed their importance in making up the professional skillset, which leads to a difficulty in presenting numerical data responsibly and accurately (Maier 2002). A noteworthy is the subfield of computer-assisted reporting, which focuses on examining quantitative data through a journalistic lens. Over the past several years, this data-driven form of journalism has become more important within the profession as it has joined with the increasingly ever-present digitization of personal and public information. As more information continues to become increasingly zeroes and ones at the most basic level, journalism has increasingly been involved in gathering, analyzing, and computing that information as well as quantitative data.
