This week, I’m going to take a break from posting stories and tell you all a little about myself.
I gave a little insight into who I am in my first post, but let’s dive in a little more. I am 21 years old (soon to be 22) and I was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, although I always joke I’m from the wrong state as I cannot stand the heat and look forward to the day I move up north and get to bask in the wonder that is all four seasons. I am a currently a senior at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications studying Telecommunication with a focus in News. I’m a reporter and anchor at WUFT News, which operates out of the on-campus Innovation News Center. I have built a rather nice resume I think, considering the short time I have spent reporting and anchoring. I started out as a radio reporter but moved on to TV reporting in Fall 2018. I really want to be a reporter, or multimedia journalist, after I graduate in May of 2020. It’s my passion and something I am, hopefully, good enough at to make a career out of. Some of the stories I’ve done this year are among my favorites, including my story on Port St. Joe, FL a year after Hurricane Michael, which I posted about a few weeks ago.
My interests include reading, playing piano, watching TV and film, drinking more coffee than I should and spending the day getting lost in a museum. I have a dog, a 1-year-old Pug named Chewie, who is my heart and soul and I love him like he was my own child. He’s a menace, but he’s a cutie.
Well, that’s pretty much all that I have to say aboout myself, so I’ll leave it at that.
