Murphy's Law

It strikes me as funny when I think about becoming a journalist.
I went to college to be a teacher, but after three years decided it wasn’t for me. I had friends who were in broadcast journalism, but I didn’t want to talk for a living, so I switched majors to the next best thing, print journalism.
What I think is funny is that I grew up painfully shy and quiet, but I ended up in a profession in which I talk to people — most I barely know — and ask them to tell me their life’s story.

It took me a while to realize what drew me to journalism, but I realized I find people extremely interesting.
