YES! YES! YES! I’ve got in!
It was simply like this: like all of my wishes came true… all at once!!! That’s how I felt after I have read the email sent to me, confirming my recruitment. I was actually late in knowing the big news, for I’ve not opened my email for some time. It was late at night when I got to know, that’s why I can’t scream in the house (my Papa will kill me!).
You may not even have the slightest idea how much this is for me. After knowing that I’m now an official contributor in our school paper, I was assured that the rest of my college life will be more colorful and fun! That my remaining years are already solved. Campus Journalism family has always been the family that I’ve been with since I entered school- Ang Bukang Liwayway (primary), Ang Tagaytay Breeze (secondary)… and now, my ULTIMATE COLLEGE DREAM– to be a part of The Laurel Leaf.
All I can see is a very bright future ahead of me- brighter than the sun. I owe everything to you Jehova, my God, for giving me such talent and determination. I owe to you my bravery during the interview, my skills in writing my sample works. I owe to you my friends who got my back when I was at the interview area, my friends who may be distant- but I know are supportive of my dreams and ambitions.
This success, I dedicate to my Campus Journalism families back then.
Long live campus journalism! Long live writing!
