Angely, thank you for sharing this insightful piece. I am a journalist and copywriter in Singapore and journalism in my homeland is also facing uncertainty in the midst of disruptive influences such as social media, lack of readership among the young, and many more factors. We have also had layoffs and more may come. But I still hold onto the love of writing and I am glad that some of my stories touched people’s lives and made others care.

So I still continue writing and reporting, and getting rich (if at all) is a bonus. The memories and impact of our stories — that nobody can take away.:)

Loves storytelling in all its forms, from books to movies to videos and all else. Life is a story and I want to fill each chapter with life or lives well lived
