What does journalism mean to you? Journalism is an outlet for change, a means to enlighten citizens, and an opportunity to shake society out of our complacent state. To me, the value of journalism rests in its interpretation of the world and its ability to empower the informed. 

What are your interests? Reading & writing, travel, photography, political science & law, inspiring change, and making a difference in the world. 

What is your favorite quote? “Be the change you want to see in the world” ~ Gandhi

 “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” ~ J.K. Rowling 

What did you want to be when you were 5? An artist 

What are three little things that brighten your day? Coffee, sunsets, deep conversations, and (yes there is a 4th) seeing people I love happy
