Stairway to my dream job

I never thought I would be in a position to be the Editor-in-Chief of the Ram Page.

I have always thought of it some-day but it seemed more like a dream way down the road; it was always out of reach.

I took a leap of faith and applied for the position, and I am happy to announce that I was granted the spot.

I have hope that my staff and I will achieve great things this year as we adjust to changes.

When I started at the Ram Page, I was two weeks into my freshman year. I knew I wanted to write for a newspaper but was intimidated by the thought of a university paper.

I was a staff writer for my first semester. My second semester I took on the position of Online Editor as well, which was a big step up in my book since I was trying to gain knowledge and experience.

I kept these two positions for a little more than two semesters until I was offered the position of Sports Editor half way through my first semester as a junior on March 21, 2018.

This was my favorite position so far because I enjoy writing about sports. I feel that it comes natural to me; plus, I find sports intriguing. It was also nice to have my “beat” as a journalist.

The school year ended, along with the Ram Page for the semester and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue as a print journalist.

This past summer all, I thought about was whether I could even take on the position of Chief.

The thought of it frightened me.

My family, boyfriend and youth minister all told me that the only person who had doubt - was me.

I finally convinced myself of Philippians 4:13: that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 

I am not going to be afraid of anything that comes my way; I have big plans for the Ram Page.

I think I’m the girl for job and if I’m not, I will work until I am.

I want to say a small thank you to everyone that supports me, you know who you are. I couldn’t do it without you all.

I look forward to this year and to being your Editor-in-Chief.
