What is Your Goal with Being a Journalist?

My goal with being a Journalist is to do what I think my role in a community ought to be. I do not see myself as the main star, nor do I want to be. I find it enjoyable to help lift other people up into the spotlight, and really make them feel included. I am not sure if I can help everyone, but even in my day-to-day life, I cannot shut up about wanting to try.

What interests you about Journalism?

I believe my main interests as a journalist are grassroots communities. Any small group of people that are ambitious enough to make the world around them a better place. I found in my day-to-day life that as a small fish you can make a big splash if you flail around trying for long enough.

When you aren't doing things for the Clipper, what can you be found doing?

In my free time when I am not doing school or journalism, I help run Super Smash Bros. tournaments. The main one I help work on is a bimonthly called Domino Effect. Through that, I have helped be a part of and cultivate a community. I find that belonging to and doing one’s part in growing a community is intensely fulfilling.
