Shapiro Takeaway- Madison Moore
The biggest thing I took away from Shapiro's talk was that you always have to be prepared to take the most out of whatever situation you are in. Whether it was facing a tragedy in his own community, to being a copy aid and working his way into reporting, Shapiro took any opportunity he was presented and ran with it. He really left me with a sense that every story your covering has the potential to be a huge step in your career, if you can put in the work to make it that way. As a college student still figuring my life plan out Shapiro is incredibly inspiring, demonstrating that you do not have to have your whole life planned out to be successful, but simply be ready to take the chance when you need to.
