Last week, I was one of several reporters who contributed to a follow-up story about the murder of a local real-estate agent. It was my first time having to call friends and family of the deceased and I was nervous about picking up the phone and dialing those numbers.
Tomorrow, I’ll cover my first funeral and I’m equally nervous. The thing about journalism is you’ll never get all the way through that list of “firsts.”
So as intimidating as it can be to tackle touchy subjects, I’m in this field because I love getting to try new things every day.
Here’s a link to the story I contributed to last week.
