In an interview with BU Today in 2014, David Carr said: "The dirty secret: journalism has always been horrible to get in; you always have to eat so much crap to find a place to stand...If you’re gonna get a job that’s a little bit of a caper, that isn’t really a job, that under ideal circumstances you get to at least leave the building and leave your desktop, go out, find people more interesting than you, learn about something, come back and tell other people about it—that should be hard to get into. That should be hard to do." In 500 words or less, please describe your path to journalism, including any obstacles you faced. What drew you to the profession and how did you land where you are now? *
