Jonathan Paul

Jonathan Paul, a senior communications major, got the passion for journalism during high school. He took part in the school newspaper, the Carib Link, and fell in love with writing. He was attracted to journalism because he did not want to rely on newspapers or magazines for information. He aims to live by the motto of Editor Henry Anatole Grunwald: “Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air.”

“This is my first time writing for a school paper. Although I like to write, I had never really been interested in news writing before, but the experience has been a good one. I have gotten the chance to explore a different kind of writing and to be a part of a dedicated writing team.” – Arige Shrouf, freshman, English major

Resia also thinks that the art of editing in video and audio production is crucial to delivering a well-rounded news story. She says, “People like exciting things. I like exciting things…things that can keep you on your toes because news is constantly changing. I have an interest in telling stories of people who may have something to tell via pictures and video.”
