Baton Rouge, Louisiana
What's with the title? I try to put the world on my shoulders. Every profession contributes to society, journalism supporting it with knowledge. People have an insatiable desire to explore their world; journalists have an insatiable desire to explore the truth. They say journalism's got no future, but I'm looking ahead with great expectations.
My passions are traveling, reading, foreign languages, writing, and photography. I rolled that into one career: foreign correspondent. Being a more open-minded, worldly individual can only be accomplished if I listen to others. Ideally, I’ll be able to share stories with a captive audience in the hopes that it will improve lives.
I attend LSU as a political communications and international studies double major. More than that, I do my best to involve myself on campus to enrich my LSU experience. I'm a College blogger for The Huffington Post. I promote LSU Tiger TV to increase viewership and interactivity with the campus television station. I write for LEGACY, LSU's quarterly student magazine. I work with Create Lab, developing digital media strategies to tackle real-world problems with communication and data collection. I’m a LASAL scholar, using my communication skills to broadcast the detrimental effects of poverty and coastal degradation. I promote Fusion, the Honors College’s literary magazine that publishes the artistic works of LSU students. These are a few projects that I’ve involved myself in to better myself and the LSU community.
