My Story

What is one thing about your work that most people don't know?

My work is my whole world. Never in my life have I been so proud of it and so very excited to see what the next day will bring. It is not very often that you can say your job changes lives for the better. I am thrilled I have been able to do that whether helping throw a spotlight on a transgender woman who was held in jail for four years without trial (now released), informing folks about the amazing work that is being done by folks in their communities or donating a kidney to one of my newspaper's readers.

What makes you most proud of the work you do?

We hear a lot of awful things about journalists. However the fact is that we don't make huge salaries but are very much idealists. Inside every one of us burns the hope of that one story changing the way people think, shedding light on an injustice, political or corporate corruption. We don't target people out of vindictiveness. Honestly, we will talk to anyone. If we didn't, then we could not be a member of the profession with a straight face.
