When you're passionate about something, it drives you every day. It separates you from the rest. It sustains and motivates you.
My passion is connecting with people, promoting positivity, and sharing relevant stories/information to the public.
Ever since I was in the sixth grade, I've known that I wanted to work in the sports and entertainment industry. I admire athletes and entertainers because of the way they dedicate themselves to their craft and how they are willing to go the extra mile for their teammates, co-workers, fans, etc. This is exactly how I feel towards my craft and my potential clients/partners.
I'm currently a graduating senior at the University of Georgia. I'm majoring in Magazine Journalism and minoring in Communication Studies. I'm also earning a certificate in Sports Journalism.
I pride myself on my ability to be a self-starter. Since my freshman year of college I've found ways to get published in print and online, gain media credentials, network with prominent individuals, and carve out opportunities for myself. Instead of waiting for an internship at the junior or senior level, I created a website with my business partner and made connections with the Atlanta Hawks. From there I've networked with individuals from ESPN to Black&SexyTV to SportSouth.
I envision myself working in sports and entertainment in various capacities including writing, public relations, and social media. I'm committed to promoting positive things and positive people. There's enough negative news out there. My desire is to spread more positive stories.
