Summary

I am a creative communicator with a dream to help make this world a better place.

My wide range of experiences as a student reporter and copy editor, PR Director for a student-created and run podcast, International English teacher, summer camp counselor, constant volunteer, retail sales associate and assistant manager, summer marketing intern and production intern, and now a director of all operations, among others, have all provided me with the communication, research and media skills needed to become a successful professional.

I hope to find many opportunities though which I can test and grow my foundational knowledge as I aim to make my dreams come true.
