Who doI think I am?

  I am ambitious, creative and smart. I am an aspiring Journalist, with the desire to broadcast stories from a real and honest place. I am interested in people and their stories, it is my desire to be an agent of change in Media. I am not interested in the mundane lives of celebrities but rather stories of courage, hope and faith. It is my desire to be the voice of those individuals who lack the freedoms we take for granted here in the United States.

I was born in Jamaica and taught high school for six years before  to migrating the United States, This is where I realized my passion for media and the kind of impact I want to have on the society as a whole. It is my hope that through my work as a journalist that I can eliminate the stereotypes that are very often repeated, corroborated and broadcast across media. My desire is to break the spiral of silence . It is not my desire to constantly prove my worth but to eliminate the chains of meaning that come with me being a female and a woman of color.
