Abstract

In the face of opposition, it is often hard for a person to stay true to his or herself. We've all faced personal challenges that make us question who we are or what we're doing. For me, that challenge was believing in myself. When I first started taking journalism courses Spring quarter 2005, I wasn't sure if I was cut out for the major - the workload seemed too much. But I stayed with it, knowing that writing is one of my grea­test skills and passions. Now, only a quarter away from graduation. I'm seeing more and more each day how being honest with myself and with who I am has paid off.

In this issue of Klipsun, you'll meet others who have been just as honest with themselves and their values. In his interview with Justin Morrow, journalist and author Mark Fainaru-Wada exemplifies this value, despite potential criminal convictions. Local entertainer Betty Desire also shares her own story of staying true with writer Lauren Allain.

I hope these stories help you understand your own motivtions, as well as those of others.
