I am a second-year photojournalism student at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). I am currently the Secretary of RIT's Student Chapter of NPPA. At RIT, I photograph for Reporter Magazine, University News, and New Student Orientation.

I believe that visual journalism gives photography a purpose, in that it has the ability to create conversation about important issues.

I grew up in Ithaca, NY. I was interested in photography from a young age and always found ways to learn more. In high school, I worked as the photo editor for The IHS Tattler and shadowed a local photographer. I incorporated photography into two service trips to the Dominican Republic as well as a senior project in which I explored the lives of nine families in Ithaca. 

In the summer of 2015, I attended the summer photojournalism workshop for high school students at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Shortly after, I applied to RIT and was accepted in November. 

In my first year at RIT, I took a community journalism class in which we worked on a project, If These Walls Could Talk, discussing refugees in Rochester, N.Y. and the idea of home. 

In the summer after my first year at RIT, I travelled to Kosovo for six weeks as part of a peace and conflict studies program. While there, I participated in a documentary photography course working on projects in and around Kosovo.
