As far back as I can remember, I have wanted to deliver honest, well-written stories. At Boston University, I am a Journalism major, enrolled in BU's College of Communication. In May 2019, I will graduate with a B.A in Journalism, and a minor in Sociology.
In my time at BU, I have had wonderful opportunities to report breaking news, such as when Richard Spencer was turned down by Michigan State and LSU, or post-2016 election, when a protest erupted in the Boston Common.
I've been able to cover local news, craft notable profiles, compile relevant listicles and catch viral tweets not even an hour after they've gone up. My freelance work has landed me in the Washington City Paper, Refinery29, DCist, The DC Line, and the Somerville Times. Now in the fall of my senior year, I will be an editorial intern at The Week UK, fulfilling a lifelong dream of reporting abroad.
For my freshman and sophomore years of college, I was a Division I student athlete and managed to simultaneously pursue my most important passions: rowing and journalism. Unfortunately as a junior, I was medically disqualified due to a hip injury, but I flourished in the consistently competitive environment.
Hard work is not a problem. I never like to have a slow schedule and I am usually managing several projects at any given time.
I am not afraid of tight deadlines, voicing my opinion and stepping up to a challenge.
