My Rush Time as a Journalist
I usually woke up at eight o'clock a.m. and went to the Press Center to check thedaily schedule of briefings and press conferences. It was usually held by the United Nation officials or disaster mitigation team.It was challenging to visit different refugee camps to find soft stories, humaninterest stories. After that I went back to the Press Center to cover the press conferencesof the day.It was heart breaking when I saw these survivors fight for food and secondhandclothing. Unfortunately as they said, the food and clothing were limited and inadequate.Emerging to glaring, fool noon, it was time to go back to Press Center to write stories andrace against time. I was always fearing that the internet would come crushing down.After everything was done, only then I remembered to eat. Most times, I only ateonce a day because I always had to rush and again it was difficult to find food. I had totravel quite far. I needed to spend a 30 to 45 minutes by car just to find fresh food.
