Nationally Renowned Journalist Returns Home

A nationally renowned journalist made her way back home today to speak at Binghamton University's Forum Gala.
 
Amy Dickinson is from Freeville, NY, and has written for a variety of newspapers and magazines. Tonight she talked about her humble upbringing and how with hard work and perseverance she was able to achieve her dream to be a writer. Currently, Dickinson writes an advice column for the Chicago Tribune--which is syndicated in more than 200 publications--and is also a regular on NPR's hit radio show "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me."

"I feel like I have what, I think, anyone should look for in life. And in your work. Which is a really great balance," said Dickinson.
 
Her advice for the next generation? Read, read, read. Dickinson says the most important thing young people can do today is to be educated in the English language.
