Getting fired from my high school newspaper was one of my most memorable failures growing up, so when I think about the time I joined The Daily Pennsylvanian, I call it one of my “moments of courage.” It’s actually hard for me to think of the DP without thinking about courage — both when I displayed it and when I saw it in the people around me, keeping this crazy thing moving with harder work than I’ve ever known. I think that’s largely why I made my home at the Pink Palace, where each day, my peers and I felt inspired to continue taking chances, both on the paper and on each other. In being in that community, I had people that encouraged me to challenge myself and take risks every day, and that feeling was hard to find anywhere else.

One sleepless night at the beginning of the semester, I got up, scrawled it on a piece of notepad paper, and taped it above my bed where I could see it each day. It reminds me every time I see it to “run toward the things that I’m afraid of,” because they’re usually the things that end up meaning the most to me. Even knowing this now, I need the daily reminder because, deep down, I know my insecurities can still stop me from facing my fears. Needless to say, I am a work in progress.
