I am currently a junior at Ithaca College studying Journalism with a minor in French. Originally from southeastern Connecticut I traveled to Ithaca to learn more about journalism and develop the skills necessary for the field. After graduating I hope to write for a publication focused on different lifestyles and sub-cultures around the world.
My favorite thing about being a journalist is learning about how truly different we all are from one another, while still having elements that connect us all. One of my most favorite articles to write was about the culture of hip hop on campus for IC’s newspaper, The Ithacan. As a big fan of the genre and culture it was amazing to see how we all interpret it and experience it in unique ways. Working on that story was the first time I felt such a connection as a journalist.
Even after graduation I hope to continue learning and building on my skills as a journalist as I’ve discovered you’re never truly a master with this field. Instead we’re all lifelong learners sharing stories that the public would not know without us.
