When Hard Times Hit, Young Journos Hit the Road

Wired profiles young journalists who’ve taken matters into their own hands in the face of uncertain job opportunities. 

For example, the Hussin brothers raised some money on Kickstarter in order to bike across the country and document people they believe are rethinking American values.

Via Wired:

With most of the country experiencing hard times for the last few years, many young adults, and young journalists in particular, are feeling uncertain about their future. Heading out on the road can be a way to take back control of one’s destiny and grow as a person and hone one’s storytelling chops.

When in doubt, do.

    "When in doubt, do" is the best advice any aspiring journalist could take. Heed it!
