I'M A STORYTELLER ...
When I was a little kid I did everything a typical girl would do: sing songs, take ballet lessons, obsess over anything sparkly, twirl in dresses and--lastly--watch and read the news.
Little girls aren't supposed to obsess over global news and pop culture? Oh.
When a newspaper or news magazine came in the mail, I was the first to claim it. I would sit on the carpet, glued to the TV, while news reporters "flawlessly" kept the world updated.
I loved reading up on current events and always stole TIME magazines from my dad. My sisters and I would grab a camera and pretend to be news anchors and "weather girls" like it was second nature to us. As I woke up to Robin Meade saying, “Good morning sunshine,” I knew one of my goals in life was to be a news anchor and journalist.
I started my freshman year at Milligan College originally studying film. I wanted to eventually take some classes in broadcasting and news, however, because I knew it would be a good experience.
After my first journalism class in college, I was hooked.
