I'm an aspiring journalist from the sprawling and historical Twin Cities.
I am fascinated by the many cultures of the world and the different lives of people. Everyone has a story to tell and there is always something to learn from them. I am passionate about global and international news, and how it relates, effects, and intertwines with the United States. I am also interested and concerned with issues for the environment and our planet. Most of all, I love to take all of these aspects and find stories that will open the eyes of others and impact the way they view the world so our society can strive to function with peace, truth, justice and knowledge.
