Today we are delighted to feature Justin Mitchell, a Gulfport, Mississippi social media journalist and web producer with the Sun Herald. In his role, Mitchell covers everything from business to technology to gay rights. In response to why he became a journalist, Mitchell writes, "My grandfather told me to always listen to a person's story. I was inspired and never wanted to do anything else." As for his proudest work, he says, "I am most proud of working on a multimedia project on a transgendered resident in Hattiesburg, Mississippi."
