Hey, all of my friends! I hope you all had a great week!
Man…Do I have some news! I’m actually kinda blown away.
So, August 7th someone called me and I didn’t answer them because I didn’t know the number. (Priorities you know😂) But they left a voicemail and I listened to it and I think I inhaled all of the air in my room! My reaction: *GASP* “NO WAY!?”
Come to find out the person that called me was the Co-director of my School’s News Network program. It is a worldwide Journalism program and I was selected to come work with them this year. The Co-director is veteran journalists M. Scott Carter. He is a Award winning journalist!! And he is going to be teaching me!! OH. MY. WORD.😱
Needless to say I quickly called him back!! After we got done talking he emailed me. Here is some of the email he sent me…
“Hi, Vanessa! The News Network is a new journalism program starting this fall for students. It will be lead by veteran journalists M. Scott Carter and Phil Cross.
The program will allow students to get hands-on experience with news writing, photography, videography and all aspects of video/audio/photo editing. Your teacher has recommended you for our program because of your unique gifts and abilities and we would love to have you come work with us this year.
We’re hoping you’ll be able to join us on this very first year of this immersive journalism program.“
The only thing I can say is I am so humbled and honored to even be considered for this opportunity! This is such a HUGE opportunity for me! This could be the start of my photography career.
I will be going to OKC September 3rd for the kick-off of this program. I’m not sure what all we will be talking about but I’m sure it will be awesome!
It is such a big opportunity and I don’t even know why I would be selected for this huge opportunity! But I’m very very grateful and I will not take this lightly!
I will keep everyone updated as I go. And keep me in your prayers too! This could be life changing. Thank you all for reading! Love y’all!❤
