Summary

I graduated from DePaul University in June. I had great experiences so far in my college journey; academically in my journalism studies, athletically in my opportunity to play for the women's soccer team here, and socially meeting many new people and experiencing many new things. My greatest attributes are being extremely hardworking, highly committed, and a great team player. I created this portfolio to give you a quick snapshot of my life and my work as I puruse a career in PR/Advertising or Journalism.
