hi gowns! i'm 18, and applying to university in canada. when i tell people that i want to study journalism, they always say "OH YOU'D BE SO GOOD! but it's so hard to break into!", and i value that they always say i have talent BEFORE they tell me how hard it is, but it's definitely not encouraging knowing that more journalism students graduate each year than there are jobs in the field. i've still got time to apply, but i'm reconsidering journalism altogether. do you have any insight to offer?
