Tonight I gave one of the most important talks I have ever given in my life.
In 1996, while a student at Pierce Community College, I attended my first journalism conference: Journalism Association of Community Colleges (JACC).
Now, nearly 20 years later, I returned to be its keynote speaker.
This was an intense, historical talk for me… and I knew I wanted to document it. So, while the audio isn’t perfect, I did a screen capture of my talk.
NOTE: The first 30 minutes is my talk, the second 30 minutes is the Q&A.
Thank you to JACC for inviting to speak.
And thank you to everyone who has changed my life. I mention many of you.
I did not do this alone.
