About Me

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website! I am currently a senior, journalism major graduating in May at Pepperdine University as a Posse Scholar. As an aspiring journalist I've had the privilege of interning for Spectrum News 1 SoCal, Fox News Media (Chicago/Dallas Bureau) and working heavily in our broadcast and online newsrooms at Pepperdine. For NewsWaves32 I have served as sports reporter, graphics, general news reporter, associate producer, lead field reporter and now I serve as the executive producer for our weekly broadcast. Below you will find our NewsWaves 32 special edition, The Class of COVID. For this show I served as the Executive Producer, one of the anchors and shared three stories about how the Pepperdine community is staying resilient one year after leaving campus due to COVID-19. For Pepperdine Graphic Media I have been able to serve on the GNEWS team, news staff writer, news social media staff and now I serve as Digital Editor. During the Summer, my role consists of working as a 4 year intern at Crown Media Family Networks through the Emma Bowen Foundation. Now, after interning for four years with Crown Media, I am a part-time production assistant for the Digital Team. While my responsibilities are plentiful, I possess excellent time management and multitasking skills. To conclude, my standard notion is that sacrifices are necessary to rise to the top; and I plan to continue working hard throughout college to become a successful journalist in the future. ​

 

I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles with my amazing family of five. Being the oldest sibling of a younger brother and sister it has instilled strong leadership skills in me and the will to be a good role model. My parents and siblings motivate me to achieve my goals everyday and be the best version of my self that I can be. I cannot wait to see where the world leads me!
