Summary

I am currently a senior at Capital University studying Professional Writing and Journalism. I will be graduating in May 2011, after which I will be pursuing my Master's degree from Syracuse University in Magazine, Newspaper, and Online Journalism.I am very passionate about editing and design within the print and online spectrum. Throughout my undergraduate education, I have had the opportunity to experience both print and online media, and I would like to incorporate both into a future career. My main passion is working in magazines. I love that magazines incorporate various aspects of design different from newspapers. During my last semester, I also formed an interest in web design. I had to create my own website to represent myself (My Website). It is definitely something I enjoyed and look forward to working with in the future.

Another passion I have in life is traveling and experiencing different cultures. This developed from studying abroad in Limerick, Ireland, during my junior year. I was able to see so many amazing parts of the world, and I want to continue doing this throughout my life. I would love to be able to incorporate traveling with a career in journalism, whether it be working for a travel magazine or just having the opportunity to travel in my job.

Thank you for visiting my profile and be sure to check out my portfolio for examples of work I've done.
