I began my start in writing when I was 10 years old. I became interested in journalism when I started writing for my middle school's newspaper "The Panther Press." My journalism work continued in high school when I worked as a contributing writer and copy editor for "The Spotlight Newsletter." My experiences influenced my decision to further my studies as a journalism major and a public relations minor. Additionally, I am pursuing a master's degree in professional communications and anticipate to graduate in May 2025. 

I have been a contributing writer for my college's student newsletter "The Beacon" as well as a contributing writer for William Paterson University's "Her Campus" magazine where I wrote feature articles targeted toward college women. I have also interned for TheSocialTalks, an independent public digital news platform, where I wrote articles and opinion pieces that focused on the latest news, technology, sports, health, and the environment.

I have been featured in Univision, the most-watched Spanish-language broadcast television network in the country, TAPinto Wayne, Quill Magazine, and appeared in an episode of the Journalism Salute Podcast to discuss my contributions in the nationally recognized William Paterson's Society of Professional Journalists chapter winning National Campus Chapter of the Year for 2023. 


I am currently the President of William Paterson's Society of Professional Journalists and the founder of the chapter's newest podcast series "The WPSPJ Podcast." I am also a morning news anchor for the award-winning campus radio station Brave New Radio (88.7 FM). You can listen to my news reports every Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
