Following this project, I have been instilled with greater confidence in Generation Z. After listening to my peers and their thoughts on the subject, I have learned that this generation is prepared and ready to take on this responsibility. As we begin to take the baton, we are doing so immersed with motivation to change the world.
We are capable. We are eager. We are passionate.
Generation Z knows the strength held within journalism. They understand it's power and it's infinite capabilities. Our ideas will never be confined to a box; we have dismantled the boxes. We are redefining what it means to be a journalist in our modern society.
Journalism will never stop growing. The way we receive news is continually transforming as new technology is introduced. However, as this craft continues to evolve, its integrity will always remain intact.
As a member of Generation Z, for me, journalism is an uplifter. Through this art of storytelling, I have the ability to uplift voices: voices of fear, voices of joy, voices of strength, voices of perseverance and voices of my community. It is my inspiration. Journalism gives me faith in our future.
In the eyes of us Generation Z'ers, journalism is an ever-progressing outlet for expression and storytelling, as well as a necessary tool to our complex society.
