About Reeses15


Well, the end of my first full tournament is coming to a close! I have to say, participating in CollegeNET has been incredibly rewarding, challenging, fun, stimulating and wonderful in every way. It wasn't always easy staying consistent or contributing to this site to the best of my ability every day, but it was worth it. I know this tournament has seen ups and downs, but I said it once and I'll say it again, there is so much GOOD to focus on. Even when there were one or two forums fostering negativity, there were a dozen other ones where people were engaging in respectful, intelligent debate. I have no end of respect for the smart, daring, quirky, humorous and unique individuals who work so hard on CNET on a daily basis. There are so many people on here who deserve to win, and I am honored to be part of this community.

A little bit about myself: I am a 22-year-old college student double majoring in journalism and theater arts, and I will be graduating in December with plenty of loans to show for it. I've spent most of my life doing musical theater, but had a bit of an epiphany last year and realized that while I still love performing, it just wasn't what I wanted to pursue as a career. A series of things led me to the conclusion that I wanted to do something that was going to have more of an impact, and a mix of chance occurrences and gut instinct led me to journalism. It has been incredibly rewarding so far between what I've learned in school and the internships I've been taking on. Eventually, I hope to work for a non-profit or publication that focuses on issues of social justice.
