Nicholas Kristof, columnist for the New York Times, might have some additional competition when Naomi Klinge, freshman journalism student at the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism, graduates. Klinge is inspired by Kristof’s attention to underrepresented communities abroad. She would like to put a political twist on his column.
“I’m really interested in the differences between what the public in a country wants and what the government is doing.”
Klinge’s double major in journalism and political science will serve as a foundation for her future aspirations.
“My specific purpose in life is to bring out change in the world.”
For now, Klinge is working hard in her beginning classes, setting a firm foundation of knowledge to help her achieve her life mission.
