I am a junior journalism major from Austin, Texas. I chose to pursue my education at Texas Tech University in order to take advantage of the excellent staff and facilities. Also, I relished the chance to follow the legacy of success that the alumni have established, particularly in the College of Media & Communication. My interests consist of sports, reading, writing, and anything in the artistic realm. I enjoy getting to know people of various backgrounds and fields and then to achieve a common goal with those individuals is the greatest success in my eyes. Every summer since I have been in college I have worked at the Austin Convention Center in a number of roles, but mainly with the IT staff. My dream is to someday work for ESPN, Rolling Stone magazine or Grantland.com as a writer. However, I would love to work with any other major news organization allowing me to do work that evokes passion in me.
