Changing the world could be difficult, and so many believe it is impossible. There are more than seven billion inhabitants on Earth with different ways of thinking. Diversity makes our society rich in knowledge and beauty, but also the misunderstanding of this diversity could create conflicts. Journalism can change the world with a simple article, blog or photo. I am Alejandra Zavaleta Melara, a Journalism student in North Lake College that dreams to change the world of so many with my photography and articles. Being part of the News-Register is one of the most satisfying experiences in my life because of the close contact with students and faculty members on campus. I’m transferring in Fall 2016 to The Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism-Photojournalism. I might be dreaming big about changing the world, but I’m sure that one of my photos or written pieces can lead people to the truth, and the truth to equality.
“Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault,” said Henry Anatole Grunwald.
