About Me

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up at their beauty, and try to follow where they lead.

--Louisa May Alcott

My name is Suzanne Gause and I was born on November 6, 1981 in Portchester, New York. Coming from a typical Irish Catholic family, I am the oldest of six children, with five brothers and one sister. I moved to Boca Raton, Florida when i was ten. Me

I applied to the University of Florida with the hopes of becoming a pharmacist. However, after one year in chemistry, things did not pan out. I changed my major to journalism after taking an english course. My english teacher told me I was a "logical writer" and that I would "make and excellent english major." However, I did not want to be a starving writer, so I decided to major in journalism.

I am currently a junior at UF, specializing in editing and minoring in english. I am not sure I will pursue a career in editing or reporting, because I am becoming more attracted to public relations. I am obsessed with politics, and would like to work on campaigns and elections. However, if I changed my major this late in my schooling, I wouldn't graduate on time. I am still not sure what I would like to do with my life, but I know I want to be in the journalism field -- I just don't know specifics yet.
