About Me

I'm currently a graduating Senior at Howard University in Washington D.C., and I'm pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism with a Minor in English.

I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and grew up in western Illinois.  I fell in love with journalism and communications young in second grade, as a news anchor for my middle school morning announcements. From then on, I naturally fell into taking communications-related courses in high school.

I chose Howard University because of its robust media program, and when I toured the campus it felt like home and a place with people who genuinely shared academic values such as mine. Throughout my matriculation, I have interned with Hearst Television and fallen in love with the trade of broadcast news production. 

Thus far, in the Broadcast Capstone course, I have been able to mesh experience from my internship with new lessons and responsibilities in the studio that we work in. So far, I have been reporting on issues affecting the local DMV area, producing news briefs in groups, operating audio boards, and much more.

Post-graduation, my intentions are to become a full-time news producer at a local news station. I hope that throughout my career in journalism, I can shine light on diverse and unheard narratives. It's like I say, "give a voice to the voiceless, by shedding light on truth."

When I'm not reading or writing news, I enjoy exercising and reading poetry books.
