Write about yourself and about achieving your goals?

I have always valued the discourse power of a journalist, standing in the fourth estate to supervise the government for the people’s welfare. As I served as an information hub of the international social movement with civic journalists during high school and co-created start-up companies for media literacy for civilians and students, I will want to create a media-tech company to increase media transparency and implement an effective non-partisan online political conversation. Other than that, I would like to expand my CULTUREDU FLUENT NGO in a broader skill and keep on my SDG work with various NPOs and NGOs locally and internationally.
