New York City
I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri with three passions (well more than three but these are really important!): a fierce desire to serve my country, a drive to be the first in my family to graduate from college, and a fervor for reading and writing that has been the foundation on which I stand. I traveled to Miami to pursue my undergraduate and there I discovered a myriad of subjects (philosophy, sociology, history, psychology, the list goes on…) that kept me excited about learning—making undergrad a fun-filled adventure. I joined the Reserve Officer Training Corps and discovered Olympic Fencing, all while broadening my academic horizons. Today, I am a Military Intelligence Officer, a B.A. in Psychology, and a burgeoning New Yorker seeking editorial/writing placement. I enjoy boxing (admittedly most sports), chocolate, and window-shopping.
