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.


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). video - Fall 2009 Women's Chorale Performance: My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord.


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.
