What’s up everybody! My name is Zack. This is my third journalism class I’m taking at school here. I am learning a lot so far and hope to learn more as time goes along. I hope to work in sports and entertainment someday and am looking forward to building my skills to be able to do so. I enjoy doing new things and I like to keep my life exciting. This is one of the reasons why I chose this field of study because everyday is different. I love being active and doing things that are fun and I think this field has plenty to offer in that respect. One of my favorite quotes is, “The best teacher in life is experience.” Hopefully many more experiences of which will come!
Going into this class, I wasn’t really sure of what to expect. I thought, ‘Yeah we’ll probably do some writing, maybe a view voiceovers, just some boring stuff.’ But on my first day that mindset was immediately changed. During the first class period, we were handed an entire camera kit that contained a $2000 dollar camera. My eyes lit up. I cradled the camera like it was own baby. Yes, I have always had a knack for finer things in life and at the time was least expecting our journalism class to lend us such a nice camera for a whole semester, but this brought forth an excitement for a class here at UIUC I’ve never felt before.
