My primary motive behind joining The ReMarker was my passion for writing. But I quickly learned that journalistic writing and storytelling is a skill that takes years of development. After learning the elements of news and grasping the different kinds of writing — which range from issue-driven stories to personality profiles to personal columns — I realized that stories could not only take me places but also make a lasting impact on the community around me.
Personal columns give me a chance to reflect on past experiences throughout my life while giving the reader an insight of who I am as a person. Below, you will find some of the best columns I have written throughout my years working for The ReMarker.
