As we start this course, I wanted to encourage you with my own personal testimony about writing. I was one of those kids who graduated from high school but never learned to write an essay or a term paper. So after taking the college freshman exam, I was placed in remedial English classes which I failed continuously. At one point, a teacher told me that I wasn't college material... and that I definitely shouldn't pursue journalism since I could not grammatically write a sentence, develop a main idea or formulate a conclusion to my essay attempts. Thing is, I wanted to be a poet, a journalist and someday an author... desperately. Pushing past these hard places made my dream a reality.
