Profile Ventures Snowflakelevycnbc – As a former journalist, I found it easy to recognize one of my fellow journalists by the way they carried themselves. Their walk was smooth and confident despite their bags. They walked tall with confidence, even when they had no idea what was going on or what questions would be asked next. It was like they were walking into a diner carrying a tray of food to tell them about something new in the world. The only difference is that these journalists didn’t just report on this new for an hour.
They were reporters and correspondents for a popular cable news, or perhaps more accurately a radio news station. They are those who bring us the latest news around the clock, and often the very next day. They feel the need to tell us what they witnessed in front of them, as if we don’t already know. Their voices seem etched on paper; they read like they are in a script being written down as they speak. To me, it is always interesting to read about U.S. and international news, although I have heard radio talk show hosts say that people don’t want to hear about the news. However, it seems that even the most apathetic person in the world can’t help but be interested in what happened a few hours ago or even a few minutes ago.
In China, I did not read any Chinese newspapers or watch Chinese news channels. There were many reasons for this. I do not understand the language, and I was afraid that the news would hinder my ability to integrate into my new home. In addition, many friends told me that there were many bad articles in Chinese news media on ethnic minorities and even religion. When there are reports of this type, you can imagine how difficult it is for me to read. Fortunately, I don’t read much of this kind of news because I have become more curious about what is happening in China since coming to the United States.
As soon as I got my visa, I bought as many English newspapers and magazines as possible. I was amazed at the amount of information that was printed in English in these publications. Everything from movies, to news, to sports and articles about the latest cars came in my mailbox every week or so. I tried to read every article that was printed, as I studied the language to make myself understood. I did not get anything from it. However, when I saw something interesting, like a movie review or an article about what happened in the U.S., I would read the entire thing to enjoy it and gain a new perspective on Chinese culture.
My favorite English newspaper was The New York Times which came out every day. I read this newspaper whenever I was hungry, tired and even when I didn’t know what I was doing. I read the newspaper like a novel, skipping around to whatever section caught my eye. When I read it during my first year in America, all the information seemed overwhelming because it was all new to me. After reading it daily for over two years, it became more like a book of knowledge that provided me with updated information on history and politics in this country. The information about the news sometimes seemed irrelevant as I discovered new facts about China, but that did not make it any less interesting. I also read The New York Times online because it provided me with a better version of the newspaper, with more photos and no advertisements, although it was easier to read now that there were many articles only accessible in Chinese.
As a way to keep up my English knowledge, I spent a lot of time reading articles and watching videos on YouTube.
