Gerard Albert III is a senior journalism major at Florida International University, who flip-flopped around creative interests until being pulled away by the rush of reporting. He enjoys balancing the discipline and conviction in journalism with finding creative ways to find the truth and report it. Gerard served as the Editor-in-Chief for PantherNow, FIU’s student newspaper, where he has reported on student government and student finances. Gerard carries his camera everywhere he goes and has photographed protests, sports games and everything in between. His interest in journalism started after watching Vice documentaries, reading books by Hunter S. Thompson and seeing the photographs in Time magazine and National Geographic.
