Hello, my name is Zitiah Shabazz and I was born in Chico California, but am now a resident of an area in South Sacramento known as Meadowview. As a child, all I ever wanted was to be on television. The only specifics I was aware of, was that I wanted to talk about things and people of importance. I know now that I have a chance to do exactly that with my new opportunity as a Youth News Correspondent. I now have the chance to give back to my community, to strengthen my skills as a journalist, and learn what this new business has to offer.There are several different reasons why this is the perfect career path for me.
There are several different reasons why this is the perfect career path for me.
First off, my ideal in life is to be open-minded. This world and the people in it have so much knowledge and experience to offer. Pathing a way for something new can open amazing doors and skills a person never knew existed.
Second, the excitement that cameras bring gave me a burst of curiosity as to what happens behind the scenes. So growing up I have tried to be in front and behind a camera as much as possible.
Finally, the simple joy I receive from community interaction and opinions. I believe an important element of survival is knowing what is going on around you. This means being involved with the people around you and places near you which are vital in the community.
I am very excited to become a part of AccessLocal.Tv and I plan to take everything I will learn here next level of success.
