Why I am a journalist 

I initially wanted to create games. Then I wanted to write novels. Now, I am a journalist and I am happy I made this decision. 

I want to help people, and the only way that I can do that is by writing. I cannot talk to people the way I want to, but I can write well. I started by just writing reviews or layout, but then I figured out what being an advocate means. I took it to heart and started writing about autism. 

I kept writing about autism too. Then I started branching out to mental health in general. I started to examine myself and look at the world critically. Mainly when people with disabilities are concerned. 

I advocate through words and promote through acceptance. I got my School to light it up blue! I needed a lot of assistance with that and I want to thank those who made it possible. 

That is for another time though. Back to journalism for us. 

Journalism is more than just  writing for me. It is an outlet. I am fortunate to be Opinion editor for my schools newspaper, and with that influence I promote acceptance and awareness for many things.

I feel that taking the title of journalist I have opened myself up to the public and I do not mind. I am not going to say I do not have anything to hide, I do, but I want to be transparent with my audience. 

In light of that I am going to put up some hard stuff soon. It will be hard to type, but I think I can do it.

Thanks to those who read my stuff. Your support is appreciated.
