Need some input...
1. Being a journalist on the ground in New Orleans days after Hurricane Katrina. My story of how I got into the city, how I got out, etc. New Orleans is my hometown as well, so it's kind a personal thing for me...
2. My second option is more focused toward why I feel so passionately about freedom of the press, particularly for high school and college journalists. I was the opinion editor at my student newspaper (i later became editor-in-chief) during a scandal involving our new, relatively graphic sex column on a conservative southern campus. I learned a lot during that time, we were covered by national media, etc.
I want to go into first amendment/communications law and my hope is to continue to work for a newspaper in some form or fashion.
