As cliched as it might sound, my goal as a journalist is to draw attention to the many injustices in the world that go on unnoticed everyday. In other words, by exposing the crimes and atrocities that so often receive little or no attention, I hope to bring about positive social change through the power of publicity. By drawing attention to these issues in the first place, I feel like I'm the first the step in the long equation of correcting these problems. And because my main focus as a journalist surrounds stories dealing with children and conflict, I hope to eventually witness meaningful change as a result of my writing. So when it comes to character, I can't think of anything more important than that.
