It's Where the Heart Is

My name is Shamika Brooks and I am a Journalism major and English minor at the University of Florida. My life has been, please excuse the cliche, a rollercoaster ride. I moved around alot, saw alot and experienced more. From feeding kangaroos, watching elephant paint portraits (with easels and brushes, the whole shebang, Let me tell you, it wasn't always easy, but I wouldn't change a minute of it.

I want to be a journalist and write for a magazine one day. The best part about being a journalist is talking to people and listening to their stories or finding story ideas in the most weird and unique experiences. And so now, I'm just trying to make this come true.
