Staff Writer for The Skyline View

Location icon United States

I am an enthusiastic, focused and organized writer. I have worked on Skyline College's publication for a couple years while studying journalism as my major. I have researched, interviewed, and written on topics including events on campus and within the community, new community college policies and innovations, the arts, technology, and popular culture.

Being a Bay Area native, I enjoy local sports, events, and networking with the community, and hope to gain experience from field work covering such topics. I am always keeping my ear to the street for stories I share with my readers. I've had a taste of reporting at The Skyline View and look forward to continuing a career in journalism after graduating.
