Finding myself while helping other along the way

As my chapter at Del Mar and the Foghorn is close to its end, I can’t help but feel a mixture of sadness and gratitude. 

When first starting at Del Mar I had been one of the many new students who were nervous and lost. Throughout most of my life, I was always shy and scared to be around other people as well as talk to them. 

While attending I had met many influential students and professors and made many friends along the way, which helped me come out of my shell more. But I believe that after joining the Foghorn last November, I have truly grown as a journalist and as a student.

Writing has always been a passion of mine, and becoming not only a reporter but a news editor had given me the chance to do what I love as well as learn about many of the great students and programs here. 

It has been an incredible experience to write about the multiple students, faculty, and events that take place here at Del Mar College. 

Being a part of the Foghorn has given me many opportunities to not just learn more about myself but learn about the amazing people that put this paper together. This paper would not be possible without the hardworking team behind it. 

Everyone behind the publication made my experience here fun and memorable, as everyone helps each other with any issue they have and silly jokes during press nights are made as we put the paper together. 

I cannot express how grateful I am to have had our advisers, Scott Beckett and Robert Muilenburg, at our side as they help  us put the publication together and give feedback and encouragement to help us become better journalists.

I would also like to thank my amazing fellow editors, Sam Gutierrez and John Oliva, for helping me throughout the year with stories and designing and making me feel like a part of the team.

If you love writing, taking photos or drawing I would encourage you to join the Foghorn, because in the end you won’t regret it. 

Peace out peanut butter and chocolate lovers.
