For me, journalism is all about grabbing that little slice of life, that bit of story that everyone has in them, and sharing it with the world. It's about spreading information that the public needs to know, but also about connecting the community through shared experiences and stories. In an increasingly connected world I would love to someday be an international correspondent. Having grown up overseas, I want to be able to travel again, as well as show people from seemingly opposite worlds that they do have things in common.

In my free time I either have my nose buried in my statistics textbook, learning how to connect the world through numbers, or I'm blowing off some steam by crafting. I can knit a mean scarf.
