I didn’t choose my passion; it found me. I didn’t know journalism or digital media would be something I would like until I began networking and getting involved at NKU.

I absolutely fell in love with it as opportunities were given to me. Storytelling is something that became a part of me. NKU became a place I could create and try new things that later benefited my experience. Even as a senior, I continue growing. I won’t lie to you, I am looking forward to graduating. But I’m also little bitter to leave such a memorable place behind. NKU has offered me a lifetime experience.

I am more than pleased to be a mentor this summer. Seeing new interests is humbling. Being able to connect with high school students and show them skills that will later benefit them in their career transition is exciting. Watching everyone grow will be the best part.


Favorite social media: Currently, Reddit would have to be my favorite. It has anything and everything that you would want to look for as well as being accountable. I like seeing everything that’s going on, and that’s a good site to get a good mix of it.

Dream job: My dream job is to travel the world and be a journalist! I love seeing new places, meeting new people, and writing stories to go with it. It has always been something I have wanted to do. Journalism has taken me places and makes me excited for introducing me to more new people and ideas.

Interesting fact: I swam with Manatees.
