A few years ago, I started to notice that my hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, was getting a lot of national attention.
At the time, Lincoln was the birthplace of two Nobel Prize-winning economists.
One was the famous economist and Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, who went on to work for President Barack Obama and is now the Nobel Peace Prize winner.
The other was a man named Joe Stigliz, who was then the president of the International Monetary Fund.
In the late 1990s, when I was in college, I was lucky enough to have my name listed on the top of Lincoln’s newspaper.
Lincoln’s name was on the front page, as were many other newspapers in the area.
When I first moved to Nebraska, I decided to get my picture on the paper.
I had just graduated from high school and was working towards a degree in economics.
But I had a lot to learn, and so I decided that I wanted to become a journalist.
I wanted more attention, so I started interviewing people, and I met a few of the people I interviewed.
At that point, I realized that I didn’t really know much about economics.
I still hadn’t read a single economics textbook.
So I asked a friend, a friend of mine, and a friend who had worked in the finance department at a local bank, if they knew about the Nobel Prize in economics in Lincoln.
The friend who I asked said, “Yeah, I knew that Joe Stiggs was a Nobel Prize winner.”
He also said, he didn’t know that Joe was a professor of economics, but he did know that he was a former member of the IMF and had been a senior adviser to the president.
The next morning, I went to my local newspaper and started to read the front-page story, the Omaha World-Herald.
And I saw the headline that was the first time I’d ever seen the name Joe Stigls in a newspaper headline.
“Joe Stiglits Nobel Prize” appeared next to the headline, “Lincoln, Neb., receives $1 million Nobel Prize.”
I started crying.
That day, I thought to myself, This is it, I’m done.
This is my chance.
I started taking pictures of myself, trying to find out what I could about the people who worked for President Obama and were now the recipients of this prize.
I decided, this is my life.
I just wanted to be the first person to do it.
A few months later, I took a photo with Joe Stigma at the Lincoln Zoo, and that photo was the most important one of my life to date.
That photo became a story in my mind, and it was the inspiration for me to get involved in journalism.
So it was a great feeling to be recognized for that accomplishment, because the story was that people were calling me.
I’m the first reporter to do a photo op.
But my goal was to get that photo op on the cover of the Omaha newspaper.
So, I had to get on the newsstands, get my photos on the newspaper’s front page.
My goal was just to be there for the story.
And my goal, like Joe Stigs, was to be able to get the Nobel prize.
In 2008, Joe Stiga, who is now 62, died.
His son, Joe E. Stiga said he wanted to give back to his father and that the family had decided to put a large sticker on his father’s coffin, because it was something that Joe had done to inspire people to do good.
And it just made it clear to me, I’ve got to do something about it.
My son Joe was inspired by the work of Joe Stigebs, and he decided that this is what he wanted me to do.
In 2009, I moved to Los Angeles to start my own business, where I started a freelance blog, where we covered local politics, and the biggest story was breaking news.
But there were many others.
We covered a lot in Nebraska.
We had some people that were going to be awarded this Nobel Prize, so we started getting some big national media coverage.
The story got bigger and bigger, and then in February, I got a call from the Nobel committee.
They wanted to know if I wanted the Nobel Prizes in economics for both my blog and for the Lincoln Herald.
I said, yes, that’s the best I can do.
And that was that.
It was a blessing to have been given this opportunity to do this, because I never thought I’d be doing it, and to have it happen in front of my hometown, in front, as it did, of course, of Lincoln.
And so, for me, it was great.
It’s a great honor to be a part of that.
And, of all the people that have come to Lincoln, Joe was one of
