Multimedia Journalist

Location icon United States of America

My passion for all things journalism started in high school. I was in a mass communications program, where I learned how to produce television and radio segments, as well as write for newspapers and magazines. Ever since then, I've been hooked! I went on to college to major in broadcast journalism, and here I am almost 3 years later still in love. Not only is it my passion, but my outlet. Journalism has allowed me to express myself through video, photography, and writing.

Life Lessons From Famous Teens

"The world worships the original." There's only one you, and nobody can ever be like you. In a world where there is so much pressure to be a certain image, many people are losing themselves. In the attempt to keep up with social standards, people, especially teenagers, are pretending to be someone who they are not.

A Simple Thank You

To narrow this down for one woman would be impossible, especially since there are so many inspirational women to look up to. With that being said, this is a thank you to all the women in media. Thank you, from a young woman studying this industry with hopes to one day work alongside one of you.

Shopping for Your First Apartment

I finally signed the lease for my very first apartment, so I wanted to take my time and decorate it to make sure that it looks like a humble abode instead of another college kid's apartment.
