Every week, we speak to students about what is going on in their lives inside and outside Beverly. As a part of Scholastic Journalism Week, running from Feb. 16 to Feb. 22, we focused on our campus’ journalism programs.

What piece of advice would you give to anyone aspiring to work in the field of broadcast journalism?

“Anybody who’s interested in broadcast television, like anything else, has to go to where it is. You want to be a baseball player?  You better be out in the baseball field.  You have to go where ever it is that you want to be and get into it as thick as you can get into it. Go right where that source is and see it for what it is and see whether or not it is something you can see yourself doing.  Really follow what’s in your heart and maximize your understanding by reading as much as you can and looking beyond what you just learned inside the classroom and be ready to say, ‘no this doesn’t work for me,’ because all that you learn is never wasted.  It’s part of the journey of experiencing different things, and if you never experience different things, you’re never going to arrive at that last layer of what you’re really supposed to be if you hadn’t had all those experiences beforehand.
