Reflections of a Ninja Turtle, Optimist Clown, College Graduate

UPR reporter Ryan Cunningham graduates from Utah State University this week.  He tells us what this accomplishment-- nine years in the making -- feels like.


The graduation speeches in the region that got the most press were the controversial ones, the ones that warned about how crappy life was going to be. I kind of felt like life was already crappy, so I made it a priority to remind my peers that, a decade ago, we all just wanted to be ninja turtles, and how strange is it that now, all of a sudden, even wanting to be a journalist seems pretty far-fetched. So be WHO you want to be when you grow up, not WHAT.
