Overwhelmed is a very accurate word to describe how I felt the first two days of the UNT journalism workshop. With 11 new faces to learn and many, many classes to attend, I held my head high to hide how truly nerve wracked I was.
The first couple days were rough and seemed like it would never cease, but we were learning from the best and endured. The 11 new faces before became 11 faces of friends as we interviewed, reported, learned together, and shared laughs.
After I got over my many stomach butterflies I was dumbfounded by how much I could soak in, in just a few days! Learning the different aspects of journalism and being able to experience them hands on is an amazing privilege. I feel that this workshop/program has really captured all the branches of journalism in a way that all the students are adept to get to know inside and out.
Only half way through and still many more things to learn!
Of course we can’t forget to have fun, so swimming with my fellow workshop mates at the UNT Rec Center earlier tonight was a relaxing, well deserved break.
