To be honest, I have been dreading writing this
article. This article means that my time with The Pointer is ending. It has
been such an amazing time. I can’t even possibly write down every cool
experience that this job has provided me with.
I’ve traveled to Los Angeles, Seattle and San
Francisco. I’ve talked to Robert Redford, Tyler Oakley and Dan Savage. I’ve
become part of the White House Press Pool and have interacted with countless
These experiences were great, but nothing will beat the
experience of feeling like a part of the UWSP community.
Through my job, I’ve interacted with (what seems like)
everyone on campus. And let me tell you, I have met some inspirational people
I can recall many interviews that have completely
affected and influenced me. There are so many people that I have met and worked
with that are passionate about what they do and with life itself. What could be
better than that?
I have had the pleasure of working with lot of people
on staff here. Everyone I have met here has had a contagious passion for
journalism. My life wouldn’t be the same without them. The people I have worked
with taught me how to be fearless, have fun, have great Lady Gaga dance
parties, and how to immerse myself with a group of crazily unique individuals.
If there is one thing that I will take away from my
experience at The Pointer, it’s the importance of meeting people. Meeting new
people is the best experience you could possibly give yourself. People are
incredible and do amazing things on a daily basis. Let this inspire you. Stay
connected and be an active part in the world around you. I did, and it has been
the most rewarding experience of my life.
