Hello- my name is Jazmin Sanchez. I am currently a junior communication studies major at Loyola Marymount University working on getting her journalism certificate. For as long as I could remember, I have loved to read and write. I was the girl who asked for books over toys and would beg my mom to take me to the library after school where I would spend hours at a time reading a single book. As I grew older, I was inspired by my favorite authors to write my own stories which I would later share with my friends and family. Once I got to high school, I thought it was only appropriate to feed my appetite for the written word by joining the yearbook staff of my school. Upon my yearbook advisors’ request and encouragement I also joined the newspaper staff. There, I realized my passion for journalism and found myself devoting most of my time to the paper as an editor. From then on I knew that was what I wanted to do. Once I started college, I did little journalistic writing but a lot of blog following, spending any free moment on my favorite blogs. Last year I decided that it was time to actively start working towards my dreams of one day being a journalist which is why I am in this class now. I do hope to eventually start my own personal blog, preferably a healthy living one where I could share my passion for health and fitness as well as my everyday life. I hope that this class could set up the foundation I need to become a successful and engaging blogger. I rely on my passion and determination to help me be successful in this class and I believe that they will help me propel forward towards my career in journalism. I definitely feel like I am a digital native. In fact, I don’t remember what life was like before I had technology! I doubt it could have been any more intriguing than it is now.
