I’m a journalist, and a complete introvert
Viktoria Isabel M.

Viki, you are doing great. Believe it or not, I used to be very quiet and shy — sometimes these are things you grow out of, at least in part :). In some ways, I still am, but I force myself out of it for the reasons you outline above — because journalism and teaching are things I believe in. One thing I think I need to get better at is figuring out ways to be sure that everyone gets a chance to talk in class without putting on too much pressure on it. It’s also been written many a time that journalists are actually more likely to be introverted than not — and are attracted to this job even tho it is hard because it pushes them out of their comfort zone.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
