Telling truth to power is what motivates me as a journalist.

I am a senior at American University majoring in journalism and minoring in biology. I expect to graduate in May 2018. I am currently interning on the Metro Desk at The Washington Post covering everything local to DC. I spent this past summer interning with Bloomberg BNA on their corporate and transactional news desk and the spring interning with the Durango Herald as their Washington Correspondent. I am in my senior year of college, where I am working as a Resident Assistant.

I began my career in journalism as a staff writer, then Editor-in-Chief for Scot Scoop News, the online news publication for Carlmont High School. During my two years as Editor-in-Chief, Scot Scoop received the National Scholastic Press Association Online Pacemaker and has since gone on to receive that award again (and many others).

Since then, I have been a columnist for The Eagle, a staff writer for College Magazine,  the founder of The Bottom Line and a freelancer for Media File. I previously freelanced as a social media producer for The Hill, running Facebook Live streams and their Snapchat for events. I have also edited pieces published in The Washington Post, NBC News, the Hill and Huff Post.

Beyond my journalistic endeavors, I have also worked as a Program Associate and Conference Assistant for American University Housing and Residence Life, a key holder at The Walking Company and a marketing intern at Road Warrior, LLC. I serve as President of the AU chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and I am a member of SOC Ambassadors and ReJEWvenate.
