This is the original draft of the essay that appeared on SubSelfie.com
I was rejected by GMA News three times after graduation. Any other person would have just moved on, but this was my dream. I didn’t see any other option for me but to tell stories with an organization I trusted.
I have always believed that Journalism plays a very crucial role in society. And I believed that GMA had the machinery, and the principles, so Journalists can play that role well.
I bled for the job I have. I should be the last person to risk it over something that’s known to history as a long and draining battle, if not a losing one.
