A word about TheTruth:

I'm a student at St. John's University currently earning my BA in Journalism with a minor in Africana Studies. This past year I studied in Rome for a little over 5 months (and lived there for an additional 2 months) and I finally traveled to Africa where I studied for 3 weeks (more specifically, Cameroon). I have written for my university's award-winning newspaper, The Torch, as an international correspondent during my journeys. I look forward to becoming a permanent international correspondent after graduation for a large media outlet (my goal is BBC). My life's passion lives in Africa and I plan to travel back to Cameroon in May 2008 for about 2 months to extend my research and continue probing on certain topics to bring to light in American media. My goal as a journalist is to bring an unbiased (and unfiltered) awareness to Americans about all aspects of Africa; including the struggles but also the lighter and more positive views on their unique and magnificent cultures and lifestyles. I am very passionate about my goals and I am a very outgoing and adventurous which has helped me greatly in this field. I love to travel and I cannot wait to go back to Africa! My first experience on the African continent had touched me in such a different way so quickly that I had decided while I was there to start writing a book about my first experience entitled "Completing a Dream at 20... In 21 Days". Hopefully one day my dreams will become my reality!
