Grandpa.

That is what my roommates call me as I sit at the table with the newspaper in my hand, but I don't mind. The newspaper wakes me up and prepares me for the day ahead. I love the rush of sunlight that hits me as I make my way down the driveway, my eyes set on the blue plastic bundle waiting for me on the edge of the sidewalk. I love the thrill of seeing what is on the front page. I don't love the smeared ink on my fingertips, but it is a sacrifice. The newspaper completes my morning routine and always has. My passion for news, in all its forms, makes me different than most, and I hope is evident as you click through my website! My name is Anna Quintana and I am a journalist.
