About This Blog

**** PLEASE GO TO LINDA-HOANG.COM FOR BLOG POSTS/LIFE UPDATES! ****

I stopped posting to this blog back in 2009.

This was the original (old/dated) biography (my, how things have changed!!)

—————————————————————————————————

My name is Linda Hoang and I’m a 20-year-old journalism student from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I’m aspiring to become a television broadcaster, anchor, TV personality, all around awesome entertainment reporter. I have a post-secondary background in print journalism and now hope to acquire some education in broadcast journalism while freelancing and interning as much as I can!

Originally this blog was meant to be more of just a public journal for myself, as a way to remember my time and experiences at the newspapers or TV stations I have or will be interning at. I wanted to have something to look back on in the future. But as the blog has progressed, I’ve begun to also write more my personal thoughts, opinions, lists, etc. From February until April 2009, this blog was used to promote my campaign for the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD! (I made the Top 50 out of over 34,000 applicants worldwide, and ended 15th out of 50 in terms of most voted candidate. Unfortunately that didn’t ensure my spot in the final rounds).

As vaguely said above, I’ve completed a two-year journalism diploma program and am now enrolled in a two-year television broadcasting diploma program so I’ll definitely be using this blog to continue posting my student experiences in the media world! If what I’ve written has caught your eye, made you laugh, smile, frown, or critically think about something, leave a comment! Let me know. And come back! 🙂

    Hello Linda,

    I like your blog very much. 😀

    I’m a journalist student too, in the third year already. My internship period ended months ago. Now I am taking a radio class here. 😀

    Hi Linda,

    Well, I’m back to your blog a bit late. I did like the radio class but it was just too short. Only a month of training. But we did enjoy it and learnt how radio works in the real world… somehow, stories for radio are quite similar to the ones we write for print media– but they have to be clear and concise. And much more to say, Linda. 🙂

    Hello Linda!

    I honestly don’t know how I stumbled on your blog, but here I am! Probably from typing your name in Google for your articles and this came up ha ha. It’s really awesome what you’ve accomplished, keep it up!

    Anyway, loved your articles and it’s great to know you’re a Grant MacEwan journalist too! Hope you don’t mind, I added you to my own blogroll to keep up with your adventures.

        I’m actually just in my second year, first semester! We just got the fall edition out (yay!) and our third story is due Monday! Very crazy right now.

        I don’t have much on my blog (back in 2007 I participated in the National Blog Posting Month, but I started out fresh this year and deleted the past entries haha) but you can check it out at http://lostlolli.wordpress.com! 😀
