Martina, the journalist...
Martina, the journalist...
Martina is a hardworking journalist and reality TV star! She has an extensive background in TV News, Print Journalism, and radio as well. Martina's journey as a journalist started over ten years ago when she became a reporter for her high school's television station. When most teens were chasing trouble...she was out chasing interviews. Her hard work paid off, and her stories were featured on local and national newscasts before she even graduated from high school! After graduating from high school, she decided to pursue a degree in Broadcast News. While in college, she worked as a TV news reporter and anchor for the campus television station. She decided to dive into the world of journalism from as many aspects as possible. While still working for the TV station, she started reporting for the campus newspaper and even began hosting her own radio show.
Whether it is cracking a hard investigative piece, researching medical discoveries, covering politics, or even entertainment news - she has it covered! She doesn't let challenges get in the way of producing a great news report. She enjoys digging for quality stories and getting "tough interviews." Aside from that, Martina is very well known for her detailed story telling and she has recently won two awards for her in-depth reporting. When it comes to experience, she is not a "one trick pony." Martina truly enjoys helping, and reaching out to the community via broadcast journalism, and as she says, "We all have a story to tell."
The book's title expresses the author's motto that every poem is a work in progress - even after they are written. "I was once very picky about editing my poems and being open to criticism. Then, I realized that sometimes criticism is just what you need. Sometimes it makes you see the need to change your work for the better. Other times it is just good to know what people think of your work, even if you do not take their suggestions. I feel like my poems are always a work in progress as long as I live. The longer I live, the wiser I become, and that means I will always be able to look at my poems and add something that I would have never added in the past. It is like a never ending story...just like my life - my poems are a work in progress." -Martina
