What was your first job as a journalist?

Writing music reviews for a no-name web publication for no pay. A year later, someone from a paying publication called and hired me.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Did you work for your high school newspaper? If so, what did you do there?

I didn't. I was newly arrived immigrant in high school, so I was too busy learning English and too shy to do cool extracurricular activities.
