Through various experiences working with individuals with various backgrounds, I have learned the importance of various types of communication. The perspectives that I have gained, have allowed me to view issues and current events through different lenses, showing me the different stories that exist all around us.

As a double major in International Relations and Multimedia Journalism, I aim to bring more awareness to events all around the world in the most engaging ways. I am an experienced communicator with more than 4+ years’ experience – skilled at mediation. I am looking for opportunities to showcase my art and design skills, as well as my attention to detail when writing and editing.
