right: Anna Panoka"The past two and a half years have changed my life. I love reporting - producing pieces to educate and interest people and hopefully help them in some way. As for the future, I just hope to continue doing what I'm doing today (maybe for a paycheck)! I've learned more about journalism each time I go out and interview people. I'm sure I'll continue to do so in the future."
