Journalism aspiration: Anchor/Reporter
Melanie L. Thompson lives in Lancaster. She is a fourth-year broadcasting student here at the University of South Carolina. Her passion is writing. However, she believes in the pursuit of truth through the process of verification. To that end, she has decided to major in electronic journalism.
She believes this will allow her to embrace both passions. In her spare time she likes to watch black and white movies. Those movies have a texture that shows the true depth of acting. There are no fancy sets or dramatic scripts, which allow the characters to fade away.
In the future, Melanie hopes she will be able to set her talents to helping others. Whatever the medium, Melanie is excited about the journey.
