The NextGen requirement to immerse myself in a week of audio, digital, video and print journalism was a test to see how passionate I was about journalism. At the end of it, I was ready to do it all over again – because that week was undoubtedly priceless. The mentorship, guidance, and skills learned are the rewards of the project. I still speak about NextGen because it has truly been unforgettable in my career.
