๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ป A little more about me

๐Ÿ™ I’m a Chicago-land native and a huge fan of ๐Ÿ•(specifically, this kind).

I got my start in journalism in middle school ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ. First reporting for a ๐Ÿ“ฐ local park district newspaper, then for the ๐ŸŽ™Scholastic Kids Press Corps (here is my bio back then). In high school I was the first digital editor for our school newspaper.

Recently I received an official diagnoses for caffeine abuse. That said, I ๐Ÿ’™ LOVE โ˜•๏ธCOFFEE. I have been a barista twice. I’m currently ๐Ÿ’š working at Starbucks (in addition to my full-time job) to take part in the amazing Starbucks College Achievement Plan (basically, free college).

๐ŸŽ“ I am finally ๐Ÿฅณ finishing my degree in media studies at ๐Ÿซ Arizona State University at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications. (And that’s the way it is.)

I have ๐Ÿ˜ป two cats, love to read ๐Ÿ“– (here’s what I am reading right now) and ๐Ÿ“ write. My favorite thing is life is to โœˆ๏ธ travel (I still have a lot of the world to see!)

โœŒ๏ธAnyway, I think I have covered all of my bases. Thanks for getting to know me! Please ๐Ÿ“ฒ connect with me. Also, here’s a look at my ๐Ÿ“„ resume.
