I am currently a freshman at Ithaca College in the Honors Program. I am an exploratory major, although I plan on declaring an English major with minors in both journalism and honors within the next several semesters. While I do not know exactly what I would like to do with my major and minors in the future, I can easily see myself pursuing a career in the journalism field, specifically editing. As much as I would love to spend the rest of my life traveling, reading, and writing, I would be quite satisfied with a job in which I could utilize editorial skills. I have studied Mandarin Chinese for 4 years and plan on continuing my studies throughout my career, possibly becoming fluent one day. I would also be very pleased to work in China one day, putting both my Chinese and English language abilities to use.

At Ithaca College, I am involved in the Ithaca College Harry Potter Alliance, a nonprofit that takes an outside-of-the-box approach to civic engagement by using parallels from the Harry Potter books to educate and mobilize young people across the world toward issues of literacy, equality, and human rights. Aside from my interest in non-profit organizations, other interests of mine include reading, film, music, traveling, sports, video games, media such as print and online newspapers, YouTube, etc.

I come to Ithaca from Tampa, FL where I have lived for the past 5 years. I have moved all over the United States throughout my life and have been fortunate enough to travel both all over the States and the world. I hope to one day be able to include traveling in my career!
