Which aspects of your work do you find the most challenging? The most rewarding?

ED: A few of the most challenging aspects are the highly competitive freelance environment, and the constantly-shifting media landscape that requires journalists to continually learn about new technologies and new forms of reporting. The most rewarding aspect is the actual work, as I find the topics I cover to be challenging and exciting.

If there’s one thing you could change or improve about journalism—in any area—what might that be and why?

ED: Journalism is shaping the world significantly by playing a major role in exposing the ills of society. Journalists are the eyes of the people and the hope of the powerless. It is unfortunate that the industry hasn’t gained total freedom to expose the truth, and that journalists are rarely given the respect they deserve.

What do you think about the role of technology in journalism? Is it helpful? harmful? Something in between?

ED: Journalism has been led into the digital age, providing online subscription options, real time notifications, and stories tailored to their interests. Because of digital technology, new media platforms will rise.
