Liz Wolfe Managing Editor at Young Voices sharing during media and journalism fellowship

I was feeling disheartened to the degree in which my ideas and my journalism weren't really accepted on my campus. It felt like it was often met with lots of angry dissent as opposed to more intellectual challenges to the ideas of a free society. It's really cool to learn a little bit about journalism, ethics, and about how to communicate these ideas really well to audiences that might not be interested in them initially.
