Hello, thank you so much for taking the time to check out my blog. The purpose of this blog is to share my journalism journey through the art of blogging. I share my journey to help inspire any future journalist, the curious readers and anyone needing guidance on their own journey.
In 2017, I graduated from The California Maritime Academy as an International Business Major. In 2017, I began a new journey away from (Northern California) home and moved to Southern California. I was a Pricing Analyst at one of the world’s leading ocean carriers. I have been blessed in being able to travel, negotiate with people from numerous countries, and learn about the various commodities the U.S. exports around the world. On the side, I was a part-time intern reporter at Long Beach Local News. In addition, I served as an intern assistant to Cece Valencia, radio host from 93.5 KDAY, the first female in hip-hop radio history to lead a morning show.
Now, I’m working towards becoming a positive leader in Business Journalism. This year 2020, I have accepted an intern opportunity for CNBC. I am excited, nervous and thankful.
Words are powerful and through the art of storytelling, I am committed to not only inform people but inspire them. Knowledge is power but I believe it is meant to be used and shared with others in order to make a difference. Follow my journey through #MyJournalismJourney or Instagram @alejandra.salgado.rtv.
