I have always wanted to be a news reporter. When I was about 10 years old, I would write my own news stories and publish them in my own newspaper. In reality, the newspaper was just a piece of paper on which I’d written my stories and drew my pictures, but it was my first taste of the power of the press.
我一直想成为一名新闻记者 。当我大约10岁的时候，我会自己撰稿新闻事件，并发表在自己创建的报纸上 。事实上，所谓的“报纸”就是一张纸，我在上面写新闻，配图，但这是我第一次领略到新闻媒体的力量 。
When I got to college, I worked on the university newspaper and started out as a copy editor, editing stories and writing headlines. Then, I began to cover news events, getting my first bylines. I can’t tell you how excited I was to see my name in print for the first time!
上大学时，我在校报工作，一开始是文案编辑，负责编辑故事和写标题 。然后，我开始报道新闻事件，获得了第一个署名 。我无法形容第一次看到自己名字出现在报纸上的心情有多激动!
Since then, I’ve worked at several newspapers. I started out at the bottom, writing obituaries and news briefs. Then, I got a regular beat and wrote some features and investigative reports. I’ve even written the occasional editorial.
从那以后，我先后在几家报社工作过 。从最底层做起，写讣告和新闻简报 。然后，我有了一个固定的职责，写一些专题和调查报告 。我甚至还写过几次社论 。
What next? You never know in the newspaper business, but I’m shooting for a Pulitzer!
