School: University of South Carolina
Newspaper: The Daily Gamecock
Title: Opinion editor
What made you decide to start working for The Daily Gamecock?
I joined TDG because I wanted some experience in journalistic writing. And I joined opinion because I'm a very opinionated person and needed an outlet to write.
What do you like best about your new organization?
I love all the people I've met so far, from staff members to the people I've interviewed. I also love knowing everything that's going on on-campus since I'm a very nosy person.
What do you like best about your campus?
I love the atmosphere on campus, whenever I'm stressed or need to clear my head I always walk around the horseshoe sometimes listening to music, sometimes just listening to what's going on around me.
What's your favorite thing you've written about so far?
I wrote about The Rowan and how on move in day a bunch of residents walked into a messy apartment. I got to talk to the residents and listen to their experiences. This was one of the pieces I felt like could actually make a difference.
