While working as a reporter at The Pasadena Citizen, I was required to write a column, about once each month. At first, I was dreading the idea of writing a column -- I never looked forward to exposing my personal feelings in my job. But after a few months, I really enjoyed the opportunity column writing gave me. It seems I did have something to say about a lot of the issues I covered, but was limited on what I could publish in a news article. The column format allowed me to interject my personal observations on issues, as well offer examples of how circumstances today relate to my own past experiences. Below you will find some of the columns I wrote at The Pasadena Citizen. I hope you enjoy them. - Copyright 2007
