One year ago this week, I began my journey with the Macon County Times. Like with so many people out there, COVID had turned my world upside down. I decided I would go back to college and seek a degree in communication and journalism. I was two semesters in when I was approached about working for the Macon County Times. I was excited and really honored to be considered. 

I think the first thing that I had to tackle mentally was getting used to attending county and city meetings and getting to know the local government officials. Would they accept me? Could I successfully navigate politics as someone who had never really been politically active? I think I have managed to deal with both of those issues in a positive way, at least I like to think so. Politics is a sometimes slippery slope whether it is government or school related. I truly try and keep things balanced when dealing with either.
