“On behalf of my family and me, I thank the Radio Television Digital News Foundation for awarding me this scholarship. As a young journalist it is at times difficult to know whether your stories are being heard. The long nights editing in front of a computer, endless days setting up interviews, and the frantic scurrying from one location to another are in vain if the final story is not shared. This award is proof that it is all worth it. I am excited and further motivated knowing that the voices of those in my stories have been heard. As a journalist I thank you for taking the time to recognize my work, and as a daughter and sister I thank you for offering this opportunity for my family and me.”
