Finding My Passion
I'm a journalism student finishing up my last semester at the University of Colorado Boulder where I'm also a web developer, peer mentor and marketing assistant. Previously, I've worked for The American Prospect, CHSAANow and 303 Magazine. I also recently started a photography company with my best friend, Conner Davis.
I started out in scholastic journalism writing movie reviews and blogging about the great outdoors; before long, I became an avid news junkie and realized how passionate I was (and am) about politics, education and holding power to account. Although my interest in journalism was prompted by my passion for writing, I've delved into other forms of storytelling like photography, videography and design during high school and throughout college.
My teachers, my internship supervisors and my peers have all taught me invaluable lessons during my time as a journalism student. I can't imagine a life in which I didn't discover my passion for journalism and everyday I am grateful for the opportunity to learn more about the world around me because of it.
Journalism student, web developer, photographer, and all-around great gal with stellar grammar.
