I am a senior at Brentsville District High School, where I serve as Managing Editor and Business Manager of The Roar, the school paper. I will be attending Loyola University New Orleans in the fall, where I will be majoring in Mass Communications, both Strategic Communications and Journalism, and minoring in Sociology. I will be in the University Honors Program and the Social Justice Scholars Program. In my free time, I like to watch Netflix (my current obsession is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), sleep, and read. I am a big animal lover, with four cats and two dogs, and I have two older brothers and a twin sister.
