A symbol in a sticker

CYLA told all the incoming corps members to take a picture of themselves with the City Year logo to symbolize what they will bring to City Year. Mine, of course, has to do with my grueling battle to get into journalism school (moving across the country then back, rejection, acceptance, and so the story goes on… most stressful two years of my life). My little explanation on the City Year facebook page: I wanted to study journalism from basically elementary school up until college and I never gave up on that dream, regardless of how hard it was to get into j-school. So, this is me at USC – where I ended up studying journalism – in front of Tommy Trojan to symbolize to always “fight on!” (our school motto). I hope to teach my students next year to never give up on their childhood dreams, because they are achievable!
