Born and raised in Southwest Georgia, I am in my third year at the University of Georgia.
For as long as my memory serves, I have known that I have wanted to go into journalism. My love for this field was again re-affirmed during the summer of 2013. I was sitting at George Mason University listening to CNN’s Candy Crowley talk about her undream, that is the thing you want most in life, but doubt will ever happen.
At that exact moment, I began to think about my undream–which would be to work for a news network in some capacity–hopefully using my backgrounds in journalism and political science.
During the summer 2016, I interned at WALB News 10 in Albany, Georgia, the NBC and ABC affiliate for all of Southwest Georgia. There, I had the opportunity to shadow reporters during their day-to-day routines, work alongside the digital content team and further learned the workflow of the daily content that flows into and out of a local newsroom.
Currently, I am majoring in Journalism, minoring in Political Science, and working towards a certificate in New Media.
I am also the newly-elected president of Sigma Alpha Omega, Mu Chapter, for the 2017 calendar year.
