I attend Occidental College, where I am studying history and preparing for my senior thesis on an urban study of my hometown, Louisville, Kentucky. I have extensive coursework material in literature, comparative studies, American history, legal inequity, and world history. As a senior staff writer at my college newspaper, I have a broad range and write on everything from environmental justice, culture, local politics, stories on mental health, and music. I hope to leverage my current skills to build a career in journalism so that I can keep writing about and digging into stories that spark my interest. In my spare time, I like to scourge the Internet for undiscovered artists, tend to my plants, and read books with run-on sentences.
