I have always had a strong interest in journalism and the media. I recall cutting sports articles out of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as a young child, and have been religiously following the Daily Show ever since I entered my teens. Last year I was sought out to write for the Rocket as a contributor, but was named the Staff Reporter when the position opened up soon after the Fall semester began. After a year of covering some of the biggest news stories the small village of Slippery Rock had to offer, I was named the paper’s Editor-in-Chief. Now fully underway in my fifth and final year at this university, I have the wonderful opportunity to help create and run the student newspaper. When not at the Rocket, you can find me interning with the Butler County Humane Society.
