Think Differently

Danielle Bequette supports from powering the scenes

Danielle Bequette, Columbia Daily Tribune content producer

I was studying psychology at University of Missouri-St. Louis when unanticipated functions necessitated a return to my residence in Fredericktown, a small city in the St. Francois Mountains of Southeast Missouri.

Unsure of my job path and in need of a work, happenstance brought me to the world of journalism as an administrative assistant at the neighborhood newspaper, the Democrat Information. 

Everyday living at a smaller-city newspaper is often wearisome, but in no way monotonous. All through the working day, regional officers, members of the general public and all walks of everyday living stopped by on business enterprise or just to chat. Listening to their tales above the yrs, I acquired perception I never ever had to the concerns bordering my residence county.

Numerous several years, work and areas later I once again located myself functioning at a newspaper, this time the Columbia Each day Tribune.
