Career portrayals deceiving
Since this time I’ve learned better. Just like with most careers, reporters must learn to work with a lot of different personality types, pay attention to details, develop the ability to multi-task and stay focused on a goal despite the curve balls life can throw.
When I was 13 and dreaming of being Lois Lane, I didn’t think about things like that. I only thought about the parts of the job that seemed exciting, like reporting on a catastrophe or traveling to other cities to cover newsworthy events.
