Where I'm coming from...

I was born in Marion, KS, but I was raised in Florida.I graduated from Martin County High School in 2004. After graduation, I took a year off from school to earn some extra money before committing to a university. Luckily, after that long year away from school, and a few early stumbles, I was able to get back into the swing of things pretty quickly.

I was born in Marion, KS, but I was raised in Florida.I graduated from Martin County High School in 2004. After graduation, I took a year off from school to earn some extra money before committing to a university. Luckily, after that long year away from school, and a few early stumbles, I was able to get back into the swing of things pretty quickly.

My first semester at the University of Florida was the fall of 2005. I'd never thought that such a long absence from school could make such a difference. I was a little unsure of the university life at first, but I grew accustomed to it after freshman year.

I chose to major in journalism because I like to write and because THERE'S NO MATH INVOLVED. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's an army of numbers spattered on a page looking up at me and laughing. Terrible. However, I didn't consider the current global transition from print to online journalism. Lucky for me, the University had that base covered. So here I am.
