Judy Muller, you never had me as a student, but three years ago I attended a panel in which you described the assignments Annenberg journalists were expected to do and the amazing reporters they grow to be. This sounds silly but I found myself sitting taller, as if I was being called into battle. A month later I began my application to USC. As such, I cannot thank you enough for that initial spark that led me to the best journalism family in the world.
I wish you and Professor Trope the very best and my thoughts are with both of you. Fight on.
