My name is Dana Hatchett and I am a recent graduate from the University of Florida. My passion is journalism and I hope to make a living from doing the one thing that I love to do the most. Listening to peoples’ stories and giving them a voice is what makes me passionate about journalism. As an American, I feel that it is important to share the stories of the American people and to give them a voice in society. By reading the stories that I have written, hopefully you will get a sense of a journalist’s duty to serve the public and the First Amendment. The public service aspect of journalism is something that I feel is critically important in today’s society.
