From a young age, I knew I would do whatever it takes to become a journalist. Whether it was selling my bed, television, and 1991 Honda Civic to pay my way for college or graduating both high school and college a year early - I wanted to reach my purpose of becoming a reporter. After landing my first journalism internship at 15 years old, it prompted me to convince my high school to start a journalism class. The class prepared me for my return to The Victorville Daily Press two years later. Months later, I attended Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) being the first person in my family to attend a university. During my two years in college, I have played a critical role in my school newspaper as the web editor, staff writer and news editor. My experience led me to write for USA Today College and The Daily Caller in Washington D.C. At The Daily Caller, I had the privilege of interacting with politicians such as President Obama, Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina and U.S. senators such as Lindsay Graham. After leaving Washington D.C., it sparked my interest in politics. I soon transferred to the University of California, San Diego. Now, my career aspiration after college is to become a lawyer focused on constitutional law.
