Shae Hulen says goodbye to The Trailblazer, looks forward to future

Shae Hulen

I chose to study journalism because I felt like I could do the newspaper some justice, and I also love to write.

When I chose to study journalism, I was worried that my disability would hold me back from being able to do the job or a report.

Reading the Sun-Commercial and reading magazines was what inspired me to become a future journalist.  

My three-year experience here at Vincennes University has had its ups and downs. Even though I had my hard times, I have enjoyed my time here.

I would not have been able to get through these first three years of college if it were not for the wonderful people I have met along this long and hard journey to my success. I would like to mention a few of those people.

Deana Hartzburg, secretary at Experience VU, is a witty, funny, caring and loving person. She always picks up my spirit when I am feeling down. She also makes me feel like I am not a failure when I feel like I am. Hartzburg makes me laugh when I feel like breaking down in tears. She has always been a good listener when I feel like no one is listening.

Rebecca Roach, educational coach, has always been there for me since I was little. She is a funny, loving and caring person. She always has my back and is always there when I need someone to talk to or have a problem.

Emily Taylor, assistant professor of journalism and my academic advisor, has been there through my whole journey of college. She has seen me have my ups and downs. She has stuck by me through many changes in my schedules, me being late to class and many other things.

She has always encouraged me to keep going and strive when I thought I wanted to give up.

I have also made a lot of new friends and met a lot new people through this journey.

After I graduate college in December, I want to find a local newspaper and become a investigative reporter and also become a famous author of my own romance and crime books.
