Summary

Originally hailing from the greater Philadelphia area, I now reside in Washington, DC where I attend American University.  Currently pursuing a journalism degree in the School of Communication, I have always had a curiosity and appreciation for writing and journalling and enjoy doing so in my free time. Additionally, I enjoy leisure activities such as reading, painting, listening to music, playing the clarinet, and blogging among many more. For now, I am immersing myself in DC culture and look forward to learning in such a great city. 

Objective

To obtain a professional position that will enable me to practice and sharpen my writing and reporting skills.
