I'm a reporter for Carolina News & Reporter at the University of South Carolina
BASJMC Major in Journalism with a minor in Psychology
I am graduating in May 2022 as a multimedia journalist. I am trying to pursue a career in investigative journalism, with a focus on digital reporting. I am comfortable with interviewing, writing, photography, and editing.
Growing up in the small town of Lancaster, S.C., has taught me a lot about people and how to respect others.
I have always been a crime junkie, and love to listen to crime podcasts, read crime stories, etc. I am a dog mom to a two-year-old blue pit bull named Otis.
Path to Journalism
My love for journalism began at a very young age. I remember running to the door as a child, to get the weekly newspaper for my great-grandmother. She used to read the comics to me because I could only understand the pictures. When I learned how to read, I would stop at the newspapers boxes out on Main Street and read the paper on the way home.
In high school, I was the editor-in-chief of our school newspaper, The Bruin Pride. I loved working on that newspaper. We learned how to use InDesign, Photoshop and many other programs. In my first year of college at Kent State, I worked for Fusion Magazine. That experience taught me how to take better photos, and to write for a magazine.
