2. The Opportunity to Write for Chalk
Just like anyone who's confronting the beginning of their career, I was also unsure of so many things when I started writing. But Chalk gave me not only the opportunity to hone my skills, it more importantly taught me how to write about truth, to tell stories that the youth needs to hear, and to be unafraid to take a firm stand on things that truly matters.
3. Getting to Work with the Chalk Team
The people I met while working for Chalk aren't only great writers, editors, artists, and content producers. More importantly, the team I've worked with are also good people with great intentions. Every work day starts with one simple question: what does the youth need to hear right now? And the passion to be an inspiration to so many young and capable minds out there is what drove us to seek the answers to that question to the best of our abilities.
But, on top of all of this, I will forever be thankful for everyone who consumed what we put out there. If you have bought a magazine, read an article, watched any of our videos, liked our post, or merely glanced at anything that we have produced, thank you. You've been an important part of this journey. As cliche as it sounds, none would have ever been possible without the support of those who believed in Chalk. And believe that, even though we are forced to take a step back for now, we wil always believe in you.
