Anne Frank: Desiree

“You’ve known for a long time my greatest wish is to be a journalist, and later on, a famous writer. In any case, after the war I’d like to publish a book called ‘The Secret Annex.'” 5-11-44

I read the diary of Anne frank when I was about 12. Anne’s passion about someday becoming a writer led me to my first journal and my first journalism class the next year. When people ask me why I became a journalist, I think back and say “Anne Frank.” Walking in her footsteps today hurt because I wish Anne had lived to see her story told.
