  • What I Do

    I am a journalist with a passion for music, design and culture. I have been writing since before I can remember and have been a journalist since seventh grade!

     

    Always with an eye to the future and a desire to change the world for the better, I hope to continue fueling my passion for writing with more internships and jobs in the field of journalism.
