Amber Pettell

I am currently a college senior and an aspiring journalist. My interest in journalism stems from a desire to be a voice for those who are under represented and misrepresented in our current global dialogue and to discuss important issues with patience, dignity, tolerance, and respect. I'm very interested in public policy, social awareness and advocacy and media analysis. To often discussions of all three of these things get bogged down by partisanship, intolerance, fear, and hegemony. In writing this blog I hope to provoke honest and balanced discussions that will make you think about your own place in the larger global society.
