There'll Always Be News

I want to write for a magazine.I want to talk to people, listen to their stories. And ultimately, when I eavesdrop, I want it to be my next headline.

I have wanted to go to the University of Florida since I was in the 7th or 8th grade, around the same time I knew I wanted to be a journalist. I never looked back. I know, it sounds like I was pretty idealistic at 12 and 13 years old, already figuring out my life. But, hey what can I say? I've always loved the way words dance.

Currently,I am a staff writer for The Frine Print.
