After a week in New York, I am feeling inspired. I guess that sounds really cliche but we sat in rooms with my idols. The people who's bylines I have been staring at for years. The people who run the publications I have been reading since I was kid. They were exactly that, just people. They may have accomplished amazing things that I dream of doing but they were people. They sat down with us, gave us advice for the future. They told us all the mistakes they made and how not to make them.
I do not know what I was expecting, but it good to know that the people in the field are just as open and helpful as my professors at RIT. I cannot wait to become a part of it.
