I am a sophomore at Washington and Lee University interested in pursuing a bachelor of arts in politics and journalism with a minor in education policy. I have channeled my interests in these fields through my roles as a journalist for the Ring-tum Phi and The News-Gazette, a mock trial attorney and witness, a Contact Committee member, Career Fellow, and the podcast co-chair for the First Year Orientation Committee. These roles have strengthened my leadership, communication, and organizational skills. I hope to work as a journalist, policy analyst, or attend graduate school upon graduation. Outside of school, I love to hike, play volleyball or tennis, cook (I am currently writing a cookbook), or spend time with my friends.
