About Me

Hello! I am 22 years old pursing my bachelor's degree in print/digital journalism and minor in sociology at the University of central Florida. I have a strong interest in feature writing and profile stories. I plan to graduate in fall 2022. In the last year, I wrote blog posts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as well as published a memoir on Amazon.

I'm currently a public speaker for non-profit events with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Additionally, I am the assistant visual editor for NSM Today, UCF's journalism program student publication.

This portfolio showcases my work as a journalism student. Thank you for taking the time to review my reporting skills and my deep passion for writing.
