My name is Rish Basu, a senior at St. Mark's School of Texas and current managing editor of The ReMarker.
Looking back at my career as a high school journalist, I can't help but appreciate how journalism has shaped me as a person. Over the past four years, I have invested so much time and effort into learning the craft of telling the story the right way, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
This website not only functions as a portfolio of my work but also as a way of seeing where journalism has taken me throughout my life. From covering the Dallas Police shootings — the most fatal incident in U.S law enforcement history since 9/11 — to writing humor columns, my work as a journalist has taken me places, and I couldn't be more grateful.
The ReMarker has become an integral aspect of who I am as a person. Having acquired a passion for the art of journalism — which includes everything from interacting with other people to addressing issue-driven topics — I am thankful to be able to show you where the story has taken me.
