Thanks for stopping by!
This is my portfolio.
In 2022, I was named Iowa's Journalist of the Year. I created this site to showcase the work I've done over the past four years for Iowa City West High School's newspaper, West Side Story. From the very beginning, through my first year in the journalism prerequisite class, I wanted to try everything. Joining the paper my sophomore year as one of the few reporter-and-designers in its history was a decision that would change my life. It has given me skills that I take with me everywhere I go.
Now, I use these skills as an American Studies major at Macalester College. I am interested in community organizing, communications, art, and social justice as a whole. I developed both a passion for and strong skills in these fields through my time in journalism.
Journalism is so important, more than we give it credit for in our society. I've seen first-hand how a story can make people feel heard, make people feel appreciated, and most importantly make meaningful change. It has been the highest honor of my life to be trusted with these stories. Now, I am working directly with the people telling them.
