Hello, my name is Taylor Beaury and I would like to personally welcome you to my WordPress blog. I am a twenty year old junior at SUNY Cortland and I am currently studying communication with a concentration in journalism. I started my education at Suffolk County Community College, but I decided after a year that commuting to college wasn’t for me. I am especially interested in reporting about the environment and politics, but I am also interested in crime reporting. I believe that our world is constantly changing and to be able to know what’s going on at all times will be an excellent challenge that I’m ready for.
I grew up on Long Island along with three older siblings, Michael, Christine and Alyssa. I was an Irish dancer for fifteen years before I retired in August of 2016 and I loved to compete. As a child, I often wandered aimlessly around my neighborhood looking for things to do and new things to experience. I rarely ever wore shoes and I was frequently found watching the news at my own will. I found that every news station had its own way of reporting and that there were even humorous ways to express opinions and thoughts about the news. I clipped the cartoons out of Newsday and I stayed up late every Saturday night to watch Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live. I think my love of writing and the constant need to know what’s going on in the world inspired me to be a journalist. Being able to report on what you love to learn more about is a dream come true.
The world is full of a lot of negative things, but I’m here to hopefully find a good balance of positive and negative journalism.
