I like to write about underrepresented and marginalized communities. I currently work as a reporter for The Stand newspaper, which covers the South Side community of Syracuse, New York. I also intern with Syracuse.com and The (Syracuse) Post-Standard, where I contribute features about nostalgia and entertainment.
As a graduate student at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, I’ve written about social issues like solitary confinement of youth, gun violence in Syracuse and high utility costs for low-income residents.
After I graduate with a master’s degree in Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism in May, I’ll be interning with the digital team at the Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach, Florida.
