Chris Carmody

Brief Biography:  I recently completed my second year at MU, and I’m majoring in newspaper journalism with minors in spanish and political science. 

Hometown: St. Louis, Mo. 

E-mail: chriscarmody@yahoo.com

My Career Goals: I’m hoping to find a place at The Washington Post. I know it’s a lofty goal, but I’m obsessed with all things political and would love to work in Washington. I’m also hoping to become an editor. 

Why Journalism Interests Me: I want to live in a country where the people know about and are interested in what’s happening in the world around them. I know every journalist says that, but I think it’s fitting. I remember when I was a kid and my parents bought the Sunday paper. I would always dive right into the comics. Eventually I moved up to reading about sports, then developed an interest in world news and politics. I would probably not be as well-informed if it weren’t for journalism. Note: The comics are still amazing; I just try to read other things first. 

Other Interests: I love playing soccer and reading. I don’t have enough time to do either as often as I’d like. I can’t get through the day without a Mountain Dew. I think blueberry bagels taste spectacular with strawberry cream cheese.
