As the semester comes to a conclusion, so far I have been very satisfied with my performance thus far here at Slippery Rock University. Being in college has really given me the opportunity to meet so many new people that have been able to positively impact in such a big way. May it be through helping me study for exams or just a great group of friends that I can go hang out with. Don’t get me wrong there most definitely has been some rocky moments here and there but I feel that I really pushed through those moments and have made the best out of them.

Getting in a good paying job is probably the most important goal that I have in the professional category this far. I think that I will be able to achieve this goal but finding a decent internship and really just branching myself out there to show my true talents to all the wonder news stations and paper companies. Tying into the job category, I really would like to find a job either working for The New York Times writing articles or working for CNN as either a News Anchor or work on the articles that the anchors will be announcing. I hope to achieve this goal by making my SRU internship in the summertime either through a big name magazine in the New York City or even being able to work for CNN for the summer whether it be for money or experience. As a student I also hope to be able to work professionally with some of the big name stars, either interviewing them for paper or
