Introduction:

I am a third-year student at the University of Florida in the College of Journalism and Communications. I am pursuing my Bachelor of Science in journalism and minor in sustainability studies.


Interests:

My interests within the field of journalism include design, multimedia, web, photojournalism, and writing. My interests within the field of sustainability include general environmental consciousness, vegetarianism, environmental-friendly/natural cosmetics and natural medicine.


Extra-Curricular Interests:

In addition to my passion for journalism and the environment, I also enjoy traveling, drawing, photography and singing. I've had the privilege of traveling extensively throughout my life. Drawing and photography have been long-time interests of mine that I hope to incorporate into my future career. Singing has also been a passion of mine. I have been singing in choirs since the 4th grade and recently performed as an alto in the University of Florida Women's Chorale (2009-2010).

Goals:

After my undergraduate studies, I plan to go to graduate school and obtain my master's degree in journalism. After graduate school, I hope to become involved in a profession where I can combine my journalistic abilities and creative skills. I would love to express my creativity through design, layout, writing and photography.
