Reporters are expected to become experts on any given subject on any given day, making her realize that she was not limited to subjects that she was personally familiar with. Her experience as a TV reporter made her realize that she fit the phrase: "Jack of all trades, master of none." The point is, no matter the topic or assignment, Andrea is confident she can research and produce the information and content necessary to meeting the objective and give the readers what they need and want. She developed excellent research skills during her years as a reporter, and has decided that there are no limits to what she can write about.
