Turns out one of the requirements for our blog was to make a blog post at the beginning of the semester with a little bit about myself. Oops. Now, I would say that I wish I had done this assignment on time. In fact, I’m glad I did it late. There’s a reason for this: I am a much different human being than I was at the beginning of the semester.

So here’s what I would’ve written if I had done this post at the beginning of the semester: My name is Sam Brown, and I’m a broadcast journalism student at the best university in the United States of America. I’m leaning towards doing sports broadcasting, but I am also interested in potentially looking into print journalism as well. I’m not quite sure where I want to study abroad yet, but I’m leaning on studying somewhere in Western Europe. I decided to join the Global Engagement Fellowship because I was interested in learning more about the cultures of the world, and I hope to become a more culturally aware person through the process.

Now, here’s the “about me” post at 11:32 on a Thursday night on dead week:┬áMy name is Sam Brown, and I’m a broadcast journalism student at the best university in the United States of America (nothing much changed there). I am fully invested in sports broadcasting, and I will be as involved as I can over the next 3.5 years to build the best possible resume for after I graduate. I had my mind set on Italy and France to study abroad for a while, but at this point in time, I’m also considering England and Rio de Janeiro. All that I’ve learned about the cultures of the world, culture shock, and more, I give credit to the Global Engagement Fellowship. I’m more than lucky to have been a part of the program, and I can’t wait to see what else awaits.
