When I was a child, I looked at the injustice of the world and asked "Why?" 

And those around me would say, "That's the way it is."

I never stopped asking why...


I'm passionate, creative, empathic and ready to tell the stories that need to be told. My path to journalism comes from lifelong passions for writing, learning and social justice. 

I look forward to talking to you and seeing what I can bring to your team.
