Hi! I love all things journalism, art, and the environment. When I'm not working on an article, I enjoy browsing fashion, baking, running, and reading. I'm a huge health nut and I love researching new recipes. At Blair, I'm on the debate and DECA team and host the weather for Infoflow. I also freelance, and I've worked with iGeneration Youth and Ms. Magazine!
