Arianna Huffington

Last week I went to see Arianna Huffington speak at the Staller Center.

I am nervous sometimes about entering the journalism world but then here is this great, influential woman that has gone above and beyond what is expected of me and it makes me want the career even more.

One thing that stood out to me the most was her confidence. I thnk that is what got her as far as she has gone is the fact that she believes in herself and that is something I am learning to do more in myself. Not nly believe in myself but believe in the career I have choosen.

Huffington did annouce that she that we were in the “golden age” for media. Today we are consuming news in different areas, developing and sharing. The social network is becoming so active.

She said “take your skills and turn them into your lively hood.” that striked me as a very inspirational thing to day. My skill is writing and I should try to do everything I can to make it my life because news and exploring is theĀ upmost important thing in my life. It is what I love and if I feel that strongly about it I should make it happen.

Arianna Huffington is the co-founder of the Huffington Post. A nonprofit investigative site.

If this one woman can accomplish so much and become the head of the media world, I mean I’m not saying it is an easy thing and possible for everyone to do but it is possible. Don’t let your dreams die and that is something I am not going to do
