Journalism is a passion of mine that I wish to pursue professionally once I graduate. Being able to write and put the news section together for the Cigar is an incredible learning opportunity that will help me achieve my professional goals.
I am passionate about writing for the Cigar because I enjoy informing others about what is going on in the URI community. It is often said that education is one of the most powerful tools an individual can have. Through writing for the Cigar, I aim to help educate the community about what is going on and why it is important so that people can be as educated as possible about newsworthy events on campus. I ran for the news editor position because I want to help make the Cigar as successful as possible by not just writing articles but by helping other reporters capitalize on their strengths as well.
