After two years writing for her high school’s "Roar Magazine," and a semester writing for College Times, and one semester of writing for "State Press Magazine," under her belt, she believes she has the necessary skills and drive that it takes to be a great journalist. She's also extremely excited to be a part of “Downtown Phoenix Journal” as their intern for the Spring 2017 semester!
