I am proud to be a journalist because I document the human experience with words and images. I love to share people’s stories, shine a light into the dark, record history and, ultimately, satisfy my curiosity.
Early bird or night owl? Early bird. But I used to be a major night owl.
Favorite color, and why. I’ve been in an orange phase for the last few years. The appeal directly relates to my level of self confidence. Orange is generally seen as signifying creativity, sexuality and fertility.
Body part you are learning to love and why. My thighs. I’ve hated them most of my life. I’ve liked them more in the last three years than I ever have. I still fight using words such as ginormous and huge to describe them. They’re strong and solid. And they’re key to getting around.
A unique thing about me: My story. Nobody else has it.
Thing I am most proud of: Myself.
My biggest struggle: Insecurity.
I feel strongest when I openly express my love, trust my instincts, eat right, get plenty of exercise and rest.
Thing I want to scream out into the world the most right now: Stop being so damn apathetic. Get involved. Give your talent and your time. Be active: get up, show up, stand up, speak up and stay up. And vote.
