Covering Hurricane Harvey was an unforgettable experience for many reasons.

One positive was watching the entire community come together to help those in need - it was incredible.

My family and I visited the CNN building in Atlanta during the 1996 Olympics, only days before the Centennial Park bombing.

When that tragedy happened, I was glued to the TV, and my interest in becoming a journalist began.
