  • PERSONALLY SPEAKING

    I’ve never considered myself to be a smart person. Perhaps, if I were I would have chosen a different career path. One that required a whole lot less hours and paid me a whole pile of money.

    But, I discovered at a young age that I had a knack for jotting down bits of information and crafting them into a story. My advanced English teacher told me that I had talent for writing.

    It was that love of the written word and finding just the right word to make a sentence combined with curiosity that prompted me to go into journalism.
