A Journalist with Stars in His Eyes
At the suggestion of our Chapter President, Steve Shlisky, I’m humbly writing to you this month to discuss something personal that I wasn’t intending to talk about in Off Camera. But, after some thought, I decided to take up Steve’s suggestion, for if I can help someone in any way through the sharing of my story, then talking about this here in Off Camera will be well worth it. This isn’t so much about me as it is more about all of us aiming high and going for our dreams and not letting anything, or anyone, stand in our way.
