Once I knew,I felt it was my duty to inform those who needed to know,or anyone within earshot. As I got older,I did learn a bit of discretion and how to control my urge to know and to tell,but that urge never left me. Enter journalism.
As a reporter for my high school paper,I learned to hone my skills and point them in the right direction. No longer was I concerned with gossip and the hallway rumor mill. Now I wanted to know the plans the administration had for the next school year,if any teachers had unusual methods of imparting knowledge and just what was the surprise in the cafeteria's tuna surprise?
I continued to fine tune into college,where I decided to major in print journalism and wrote for the student radio station and newspaper,eventually becoming a section editor. I will be associate editor for the 2009-2010 school year.
I realize that I have written this entire biography without saying my name,Maegan Smith; hometown,Washington D.C.; college,Hampton University; classification,senior and minor,English. That seems essential information for a journalist (or anyone) to include in a biography. Though they are the most basic facts,they don't characterize. Life experiences go farther than facts. That may be a bit deep for a little Web site bio,but I couldn't really write it any other way.
