Thought for the day: Bottom of the totem pole

Being a student has its frustrations….

paying tuition…having to be stuck in dorms… having to sit through lectures over and over again…no money…

and one thing I have come across…you hold no weight in the world.

As a MA student I STILL have no power to claim.

I try to get interviews…and people turn you down because you are a student. Does not matter that you are getting your Masters degree….

That student title just ruins everything.

People assume you have no idea what you are talking about…when really…if given the chance…you know more than people think.

I am coming across these road blocks while trying to figure out what to do about my final project…and my radio docs that are upcoming.

I have some brilliant ideas…and guess what…none of them are feasable because I am a student…and people don’t give me the access I need…or interviews I need to make an awesome documentary.

Give us a chance people!

Not all top notch journalists start this way…. they all start like me.


People these days. Take a second to give someone a chance…please? I mean really. What is the worst that can happen?

It is an interview people.

Have a little faith in your upcoming generations.
