I have my bachelor’s degree in journalism from The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU. My love of journalism coupled with my unending curiosity reflect strong traits of drive and passion in my personality. I work exceedingly hard to ensure that my goals eventually become realities, such as reporting in Washington D.C. and working for a major newspaper, both of which I accomplished in college. I’ve worked hard to increase my social media presence and have grown my professional profiles across multiple platforms.
