I remember the first time he passed me his morning newspaper. It felt like a rite of passage, a coming of age event. I remember being engrossed and my father told me then and there that if I keep reading newspaper everyday, my life will change as a result.
From the initial excitement of finally reading my father’s newspaper to the eventual getting hooked to newspaper; one of my best decisions in high school was to listen to my father and develop the habit of reading newspaper.
Since the age of 14, I have been spending 15 minutes to 1 hour everyday (almost) reading newspaper. Whether it be to have a thorough read or just skim through, I have found that this habit has enabled me to grow as a global citizen.
With access to national as well as international news, I learnt that this habit has widened my outlook and enriched my knowledge. I have grown to sympathize and empathize with the disasters happening around the world and realize how small of a speck I am on the earth.
With daily access and touch with the English language due to my news reading habit, I have also found that my grasp over the language as well as my vocabulary has deepened as a result.
Daily news reading also helps with my social interaction as I have found that it makes it easier to relate to people while talking about the current events.
