Writing has always been my outlet. I feel it is a way to express myself, my real self. So when the thoughts of declaring journalism as my major was running through my mind, I felt the first step is to find out who I am.
My trip to Ecuador opened up my eyes in a new light. I wasn’t there to just party, party, party, I was there to see a part of the world I have never seen before.
With journalism on my mind and Ecuador all around me, it was an amazing trip. I got to see family in Quito and the people of Ecuador in Otavalo, Guayabamba, and Manta.
Everything was different, and I don’t just mean appearance, their whole lifestyle.
While Ecuador is known for being an exceptionally poor country, just about everybody was welcoming with open arms.
Seeing and experiencing not only broadened my horizons but enhanced my writing as a journalists. I could now add feeling and understanding to my writing.
