Just kidding…I’m a sucker for hook-lines.
To be truthful I, and hopefully I’m not alone here, have no real clue where this subject-or degree- will take me.
- Will I hate it? Probably not.
- Could it unleash a new passion, changing my career path forever? Maybe!
- Will someone bring cookies next lecture? Man, I hope so.
All I know for sure is I can’t wait to find out.
As I reflect on my past I can see that media as a profession was always for me…
Rewind eleven years and there’s little Rhiannon, reading a newspaper at the city library, surrounded almost entirely by the over 50’s. A gentleman leans over the lounge chair next to me- “Are you practicing your words darling?”
“Well, I’m reading about the Middle Eastern conflict actually, they’re doing well to evacuate so many Australian’s given the situation.”
No joke, I was EIGHT. I just happened to be a well informed and slightly obnoxious eight!
I can’t say for sure where I want to be in five years. In an industry that’s forever changing I don’t want to be stagnant. Currently my strongest pull is towards reporting, and it’s a dream of mine to become an international correspondent.
For now, no matter where I end up, I’m excited to be at the start of a long adventure.
