Who am I?

I'm a fast-paced, pop culture-loving college student. I'm a journalism junior at the University of Florida with an outside concentration in psychology. Like most South Floridians, I was born in the Northeast - Philadelphia to be specific. Although I spent most of my life in Florida, Philly will always be my home. One of my role models, Benjamin Franklin, lived in Philadelphia. If you ever meet me in person, you'll see I often quote him.

When I'm not quoting Franklin, I love curling up with a blanket and watching a good movie. I'm a sucker for Cary Grant movies ("The Philadelphia Story" is my favorite.) However, I hardly ever get quality time with Cary Grant because of school and work. I get even less time to follow through on my other hobby: traveling. I love spending time in different countries and interacting with the locals. When I went to New Zealand, I spent time with the aborigines, and even helped them cook a traditional feast. Fun fact: I have been to five of the seven continents. Guess which two I haven't been to? Antarctica and South America.

Look around and get to know me!

Honesty is the best policy.
~Benjamin Franklin
