As a young journalist, I have had some great opportunities to truly hone my craft out in the field. I have interviewed a grammy-nominated artist, an olympic athlete, candidates running for DC city council and ordinary people living in the midst of a powder keg of racial tension. I have also worked with some amazing publications like ESSENCE Magazine, USA Today College Blog, FierceForBlackWomen.com and more. My experiences have not only made me a better journalist, but also a better version of myself.

 

Please take a look at some of my published works below!
