I decided to be a journalist. I think it is an interesting and useful profession. I like to watch TV, listen to the radio, read newspapers and magazines. I like everything that is connected with mass media. I have a hobby. My friends and I publish a small newspaper once a month in our school. We write articles about school events, life of young people. Some of us think up amusing stories, others draw pictures and caricatures. At school our newspaper is read with great interest. My favourite school subjects are history and literature. I like the profession of a journalist. They meet a lot of people. They try to understand what is going on in the world, in the country, in the city and try to explain it to other people. I think that the work of a journalist is very much like that of a historian. A historian studies and tries to explain events of the past and a journalist explores the present. But for me to be a journalist is much more interesting than to be a historian because you deal with real events that are happening right now, sometimes around you so you can take part in these events and even influence them. So journalists can influence the course of history in a sense. That is why I want to be a journalist.
