Takeaway:
Reporting this story gave me a glimpse of what it's truly is like to be a journalist: to listen to the stories of people who may have been overlooked, and to give them a platform to share their stories. This class and Professor Miller taught me that, as journalists, we have to be able to adapt to any environment. Being able to tell the story in all of its truth is the most important thing. It was also another way for me to realize that, while I was worrying about myself, I came from a privileged perspective, and that there were many others who had been hit harder by the pandemic.
