While I didn’t quite realize it at first, I have been interested in journalism since I was very young. Every morning I would run down the driveway, grab the Philadelphia Inquirer and open up the sports page. I was fascinated by the different articles they wrote, all the nice pictures and the various charts and graphs explaining stats and other news from the day before.
Fast forward over a decade, and I was writing about sports for my high school’s newspaper and applying to colleges with an intent to study journalism. At Lehigh, being a writer and editor for The Brown and White was one of the most fun and rewarding experiences of my entire life. But journalism isn’t really about picking up the newspaper every morning anymore, it’s about other things like social media, infographics, photos and videos. While at Lehigh, I improved my skills in all of these areas in an attempt to become a well-rounded, up-and-coming writer/editor.
I am applying my skills in journalism and editing while I serve as an assistant editor for Matrix Medical Communications, a medical publishing company, which will give me experience working in a completely different aspect of the communications field and help diversify my skill set. I am excited to be a part of this ever-changing field.
