Welcome to my online portfolio–a place where I have collected documents and links to showcase my academic accomplishments, professional ambitions, and personal interests. Born and raised outside Detroit, Michigan, I’ve made my home in Chicago for the past few years while attending school. I am in my last year of pursuing a major in communication studies and a minor in dance at Loyola University Chicago. Deciding to move out of state for school, and to a city as great as Chicago, is one of the best life changes I’ve ever made. There is so much about Chicago that inspires me to write, travel, explore, try new things, cook, eat, and meet people. It is this voracious appetite for living a full life that drives me to pursue a career path in the publication industry. I want to write for or edit a lifestyle magazine that inspires readers like I have been inspired by different magazines over the years. Translating my inspiration from the city into words for others to enjoy is exciting and rewarding. Getting to practice something I love as much as this has always been, and always will be, my ultimate goal.
