In my typical day, I never get a chance to watch the daily news. It makes it really hard for me to stay informed on international issues and also in a way is apparent to me that I’m just missing something completely important and relevant to my generation. Instead, I read a lot of puff pieces in the evening and that isn’t ideal. When I was introduced to the Vice series on HBO, it made my skin crawl and I was completely uncomfortable, but I loved it. It was raw and dangerous and refreshing for me to step outside of my own comfort zone for 30 minutes and be immersed in something that was very real for many people in the world. I’m really looking forward to Vice News.
