“Integrity”

Integrity

Nia Tabe, Editor: Oluwadamilola Afe

Integrity means being able to be honest and straightforward, and having very strong principles. It is doing the right thing, even when nobody is listening or there to see. I heard in journalism you need integrity, you need to seek the truth and seek it at all times. You need to be able to state nothing but straight facts. Integrity is a very important aspect of life. I know there are so many people who do not have any integrity. To have integrity you have to be able to face reality and make the best of it. An example of integrity would be for instance, you go in an grocery store to purchase a couple items. Your items cost $18.88 and you give the cashier a 20 dollar bill, and the cashier ends up accidentally giving you $2.12 when originally she’s only suppose to give you $1.12. Instead of you taking the $2.12, you tell the cashier her mistake. That right there is a pure definition of integrity.
