Before I chose to come to Biola University, I knew I wanted to be involved in my school’s newspaper. After freelancing for the news section my freshman year, I was offered the position of news editor at the Chimes. Journalism is something that truly excites me and plays into my passion for interacting with people, staying informed and communicating through the art of good storytelling.

As a journalist, I have come to realize that I am constantly learning. Whether it is how to properly adhere to the AP stylebook, how to craft insightful interview questions or the specific intricacies of a particular story, I love the whole process of writing an article. With each story I become more confident in my abilities as the things I have learned help shape the way I approach a new story. The connections I get to make along the way have become one of my favorite parts of journalism.

I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to work with the amazing Chimes staff. I strongly believe that the Chimes is a vital aspect of the Biola community as it has continued to provide relevant and accurate information to students and faculty alike. I hope to continue this legacy, pushing the limits of my writing in the pursuit of truth.
