I know wholeheartedly that I am here to make a difference. I have already discovered that I do not have to wait until graduation in 2015 to make changes happen. At Ithaca, and specifically in the Roy H. Park School of Communications, innovation starts now. My future starts now. I refuse to settle for the standard 9-5, and quite frankly I refuse to conform to the standard job. I did not come to Ithaca College to obtain a career, I came here to create one. 

Although my future goals are still in the making, my dreams have remained the same. I never want to stop learning about the world around me. I want to discover stories and report them through all forms of journalism and media. I want to bring the world closer together and create bonds within communities.
