Day Five: Today was publishing day, I couldn’t help much because I don’t know how to use their software or how to set up their paper. Today was the least exciting but it was still interesting, the editor had me sit in his office for a while and watch as he put the paper together. He was amazing! He could put an entire page together in under 3 minutes flat. It was so fascinating to watch. I got sent home early today because I had nothing really to do.
Day Six: … Everyone was out of the office today so I was all alone. I had to gather my own news stories which proved to be really difficult as I didn’t know anyone in the community. I think it would get easier the longer you worked with a community and when you gain more confidence in yourself. Still the entire job makes me feel amazing, I know this all I want to do, all I need to do! I cannot wait until I start my own career as a journalist.
