Writer.
Leader.
Change-Maker.

I am currently a multimedia journalism student at SUNY Plattsburgh with a passion to lead and learn new things. From a young age, I have had a fascination, admiration and appreciation for the news world and the publications that bring the news to the people. Along with a minor in Political Science, I see myself covering politics and government in the heart of the American political scene: Washington, D.C. If that doesn't work out, I can turn to my other love of food and the cultures where they come from.

As the Vice President of the Plattsburgh Association of Black Journalists, I have produced a hard news podcast called “Here’s What Happened…” that takes listeners through the important news of the week. As a speech coach, I have assisted students with crafting speeches and helped develop their public speaking skills.

I took part in a leadership program through Coro New York that taught group work dynamics and effective communication skills for the modern working world. I am confident in my writing and communicating skills and believe I am an ideal candidate in today’s modern journalism world.
