Professional Experience

A budding-freelancer, I have a focus in LGBT news, Women's News/Feminism, Race, Media Analysis, and Personal Essays. As a fresh face to the freelancing game I am open to new areas of specialization and adopting any wide variety of editorial voices. My one focus, homonormativity, a social trend that affects the LGBT community, is something I have created a niche in. My blog, "The Struggle is Real: Homonormativity," is on the first page of Google, as well as my article on the aforementioned topic that was published by USA TODAY College. I have been primarily published in sites geared towards college students, and young people, such as USA TODAY College, PolicyMic, and Thought Catalog. I view writing as a way to connect with an audience, and take every assignment to heart. My work is my craft. I am an unashamed, and charismatic person that is completely comfortable conducting interviews, and/or making phone calls for research.
