A Peek Into My World

my brother Jacob (left) and I

A Florida girl through and through, I was born and raised in Winter Haven. I have a great family and an awesome younger brother, Jacob, who is pretty much my best friend. Whenever I go home to visit, I spend most of my time hanging out and playing basketball with him. He may be about five or six inches taller than me now, but I can still beat him in a fair game. I also have two half-sisters, one older and one younger.

Studying journalism at UF has been an awesome experience so far. Although a few years ago I had no interest in going to this college, now I can't imagine my life anywhere else. The friends I've made are all incredibly fun and supportive, and they have become a home away from home for me.

From my roots in Winter Haven to my current life at UF, I've learned a lot and had a great time along the way. At the end of the day, I'm just a Florida girl with an awesome family and great friends who's really excited about the future.
