#My Why – Hailey

Hailey Morgan My Why

Journalism and Broadcast Media

I discovered my love of writing at a very early age. To create a story that was all my own and write it down, or even to think of one and tell it to a person verbally, were two of my favorite things in the world to do! I quickly recognized that writing was the gift that God had given me. My writing was meant to be so much more than just a passion; it was meant to be my purpose. I made the decision in eighth grade to give my gift back to the Lord and to dedicate my life to writing for Him. Here at the University of Mobile, I am not only learning how to better develop and reconfigure my writing skills, but I am also being taught in a way that is Christ-centered and Christ-oriented. UM’s Christian environment allows me to simultaneously grow in my faith, as well as honor the promise I made to the Lord. Here I know I will develop the skills I will need going into a journalism career, but here I know I will also be pursing my purpose of learning how to dutifully write for the Lord.
