Why fit in when you were born to stand out?


My mantra.

My advice for aspiring journalists:

Read something other than your social media feed!

My interest in journalism began in middle school, when I pulled Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s “All The President’s Men” off my parents’ bookshelf. I was in awe of the important and powerful work of journalism.

I was also watching a lot more local and national news, and great Houston TV news journalists like Bill and Dominique were a huge inspiration!
