I love to write, that's the main reason I wanted to become a journalist major. The actual reporting was always something I had to do and not necessarily something I wanted to do.

However, my time at UF has truly changed my opinion on that. I don't know if I'll ever be as natural at interviewing as some, but I've truly grown to love basically every aspect of journalism.

I've polished my grammar to levels I would have believed impossible beforehand and learned important skills such as photography, video editing and photoshop.

I've covered festivals, events, concerts and other fun things, but also covered tragedies and important local news.

I could have never seen myself doing this kind of thing five years ago, but now? I love it and it really is something I want to do for the rest of my life.
