What journalism means to you: To me journalism is a form of expression to share one’s thoughts, events or other platforms of communication.
Why you are in Journalism club: I am in journalism club because I love reading, writing and photography. I have never taken photos professionally so I think that joining this club will give me the opportunity to develop my skills in photography since the pictures will be shared with other people. I also want to learn how to express myself through writing good articles since I have only written a few articles for English class and I think that being able to write articles is a very important skill to have.
Personal Statement: I believe that expression in different forms can make a change.
