We are journalists. We are proud of what we do. We are tired of bad press about the press. We are trying to be "team players." We are terrified of more layoffs and paycuts. We would like to produce quality work without 'obamasux99' posting some non-sequitur rant at the end of it. We complain because we want things to be better. We would like some respect, plz. We are journalists.

I am a journalist because I have always dreamt of telling the whole world of what is happening. I am a journalist because my dreams of being on camera anchoring news still stand strong. I believe that journalists should change the world. Together we can make the world a better place to be  in. I am a journalist.

I am a journalist   because my dreams of having a column in the daily newspapers  are still firmly intact. Telling the world the stories they needs to know. Stories that will change lives, motivates and inspires them. Stories that are  hard to believe and hard to hear. These stories need to be told with accuracy and fairness. with the helps of the 5Ws and H (the What, Why, Where,Who When and How). Journalism is the only real career choice for curious, restless semi-narcissists like me

I am a journalist because the world has stories that are moving, stories that will change lives. These stories need to be told with accuracy and fairness. I believe as a journalist we are here to educate the masses with information that will make them question, how can we make this world better. How can we solve the problems that we keep sweeping under the rug. Journalist are responsible for bringing these issues to the forefront and  challenging the public to face and correct society. We do not sugar coat, we don’t make the world negative, we do not make the make seem perfect because the truth is the world will never be perfect. Our articles and interviews are mirrors of the world. We make the world look in the mirror and address their imperfections.

I am a journalist because I believe there are people out there who have stories that the world needs to hear. Stories of war, injustice and cruelties that we would find hard to believe and hard to hear, yet it’s so important that we do. Without journalists, the world would be far more ignorant than it is today, and how unfortunate that would be.

My mom inspired me to study journalism. While she was a lawyer, her determination to bring justice and truth to the world motivates me to do the same through my own passion- journalism. Her passing still shocks me every day, but I try to keep her memory alive by tackling tasks with the same courage, enthusiasm and drive she did.

I am a journalist — that is, I was a reporter for twelve years. For someone with my background, this was a big deal. Here I was, this small-town barrio girl, living in New York City and making gobs of money. Then some people flew a plane into a building, and my whole perspective on the world changed. So I became an educator. I became a teacher in order to give back what so many had given to me: a quality education. I am still a journalist, but now I write about what’s important to me — children and adults being given the opportunity to liberate their minds and change the world.

I am a reporter because I have an insatiable curiosity. I said this to my university advisor, who looked up at me and said she’d never heard anyone of her students say that in recent memory. I thrive on stories in which I learn along with the reader; subjects that I have hardly ever heard of.
I write for a weekly newspaper in a rural community, where stories would go untold if we weren’t there. Sure, I drag myself to three-hour city council meetings where I might only get one story. But I also get to explore the aquarium through a child’s eyes, see how important a stream is through a salmon’s journey, and help keep democracy in its place by pestering local officials during an election.
I look at every piece through the eyes of the one reader that thinks this article will really matter.  I write because there is passion in this world that goes unrecognized. I am a journalist.

I really loved being a reporter, but the money was no good. I kind of “survived” for almost 10 years with low salaries, but with a great deal of emotion. Now I work for a digital agency, in marketing field, and I really miss emotion. I think I’ll never have the same passion again for any other job.

I don’t remember the first time my father brought a newspaper home, but I do remember that it used to happen every day. I grew up to the smell of newspaper and to the sound of a news radio. I couldn’t be anything else but a journalist, It was my dream and now that Greece is going through such tough times I don’t even come close to the thought of quitting. As an online editor, I am thrilled to cover the news real time as it happens. Given the current situation in my country, it’s almost as history in the making.
I am a journalist. And damn proud of it.
