Nicole Wong is My Hero

The news that Nicole Wong volunteered to be laid off from the Boston Globe to save the job of a reporter who has greater needs to stay in Boston is so touching that it bears repeating. Such an act of generosity and kindness warrants a virtual pat on the back.

In her own words, from this blog post, she says:

I've volunteered to be laid off from the Boston Globe in order to save the job of a reporter who has less seniority than me and who has greater needs to stay in the Boston area due to family commitments and other obligations.

Wong has written for the Globe, the Merc and the Washington Post. She's been recognized as one of the Top 30 business reporters under age 30 by TFJR Group’s NewsBios and the Outstanding Emerging Journalist of the Year Award from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Northern California Chapter.

May the good karma bank serve her well. She just made an impressive deposit!

Amen to that! I got to know Nicole through our church -- Redeemer Presbyterian in Manhattan -- just before she left New York for the West Coast and I can tell you she's the real article!
