His first paycheck: “While in university doing a postgraduate degree, I landed in a newsroom as an intern, almost by chance. The controlled chaos was a sort of epiphany moment, and I decided to stay. My first paycheck was about $100 and didn’t even last a week, but I have no regrets in getting a ringside view of history as it is created.”
