Newspaper Journalist

Watch Lizzie Johnson, a newspaper journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle, share how she was able to combine her double majors of political science and online journalism into a career she loves as a reporter covering City Hall. She thinks all girls should consider becoming a journalist because each day is different from the day before, making it an exciting and fascinating career. She also credits her shyness, which might seem like a drawback in covering politics, as an asset. Her advice is “you don’t have to be flashy and outgoing, you can be quiet and shy and it will still work”.
