  • My name is Murphy Fisher and I am a junior at JH Rose High School in Greenville, NC. I chose to be in journalism because I have always enjoyed writing and wanted to pursue it through taking journalism.

    • Dear Murphy Fisher :

      I am thrilled about your post , “Who Am I?,” because it allowed me to connect with you on certain points.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Journalism offers such a wide variety of skills that I believe it will be beneficial in any career I choose.” I think this is a good statement because I completely agree with you.

      Another sentence that caught my attention was: “As a writer, I have always wanted to pursue topics more to my interest.” This stood out for me because as a writer, I to enjoy pursuing topics of my interest.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. As a writer, I was able to grow in my interests and focus on what I wanted and enjoyed writing for.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because…

    • Dear Murphy :

      I am very pleased by your post, “Who am I?,” because it really explained why you started to want to be a journalist. I also stated what steps you took to get where you are now.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Communication is very important, it is one of my strengths.” I think this is good because I also think that in journalism all of the sections need to have good communication to keep the paper flowing.

      Another sentence that I liked was that you focus more on human interest when you are writing a story. This stood out for me because most sports editors and writers would focus mainly on the facts of an article rather than how it affects the people.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was alone by myself at a concert and the only way that my mom would let me go was if I communicated to her where I was the whole time so I was safe.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you really showed your views and perspective on how you write and what specifically you do differently than other in your same section.

    • Dear Murphy Fisher:

      I am intrigued with your post, “Who Am I?,” because you explained why you wanted to be a journalist and how journalism offers skills you learn that are beneficial to have for any future job.

      One sentence you said that stands out to me is “In journalism, communication is very important, and I think that this is one of my strengths.” I think this is important because in journalism if you don’t communicate with your peers you might have a article that ends up not being completed by a deadline or a mishap on a page. A lot of things could go wrong without communication in journalism.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I had to write questions for a writing activity in English class as if I was talking to my favorite music artist and it made me think of when you said “I think an ideal interviewee for this would be the actual artist of the album.”

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I enjoy reading sports stories.
