The Endeavor staff, 2014.

The city of Boston and the NEHSJC class of 2014 have one thing in common: we are both in the midst of an endeavor to become successful. The Endeavor encompasses this by showing our passion for journalism by reporting on the developing city that we reside in.

Boston is currently undergoing a period of rapid development throughout all regions of the city. From the incorporation of modern trends in eating to the changing ways of public transportation, this city is working to achieve a goal of becoming a modern environment that has pride in the past and plans for the future. The transformation of this city is not an easy task, and it has and will take many years to be completed. Such a process is exactly what The Endeavor looks to highlight. From the challenges facing the city’s goals to the heights and rewards that the inhabitants of city life get to enjoy; the journey of the Hub is quite the endeavor to take on.

As aspiring journalists, we the reporters of The Endeavor are exemplifying our own version of working towards a goal by taking our passion for journalism and making improvements in our own future as reporters. As we explore Boston’s developing city-life, we are improving on our efforts to reach goals that may seem implausible. We are just beginning our journey towards reaching our future as reporters, and writing for The Endeavor is a leap toward ultimate success.
