  • About Me

    I am an American University student with an academic focus on digital/multimedia journalism and graphic design. I have a passion for storytelling and creating.

     

    I am a former NPR intern and an Editor-In-Chief of The Blackprint, a publication for students of color. I am also a Logistics Producer for College Nation, a show on the student run TV station. I focus on reporting, video production and graphic design, as well as photography.

     

    Previously, I was elected co-director of the student media organizations. I oversaw major functions such as budget, collaborations, events, and more.

     

    My personal motto is "hustle and heart" because I am all about hard work that I can put my passion behind.
