Growing up, I had a hard time finding my way. While other kids excelled at sports and playground gossip, I was in a corner with a Junie B. Jones book shoved up my nose. What does this have to do with anything, you may ask? It means everything. My love for literature laid the foundation for a career in journalism. 

I believe journalists have one of the most powerful professions in the world. We essentially take information from the masses and put it on someone’s coffee table, generating dialogue and even sparking debates.

As a journalist, I know how important it is to meet deadlines, establish professional relationships and create content that readers cannot resist. I am great at taking hardcore issues and adding a popular culture spin to them, while providing readers with facts that could essentially save lives. 

Fourteen years ago, I was a lost little girl who kept my nose in a book. Now, I am a social butterfly who is eager to further my journalism career. I have a passion for news, I have an undeniable work ethic and I have the skills that will take me far in this profession.

Thank you for all your support.
