What year are you in school?
Freshman at College of Lake County
What kind of journalism experience have you had?
Junior year of high school I was the feature editor of our school paper, and senior year I was digital director.
What do you enjoy most about journalism?
I really enjoy sports writing. I also like getting action photos of football games.
Where would you like to work down the road?
I’m actually a journalism minor with a psychology major. I’d like to work in a school. I want to work more with kids in a counselor role. I’d also like to write a book one day. I’d like to incorporate writing into psychology or school work.
How did you get involved with KEMPA?
I’ve been to the last two fall sessions as a student here at Whitewater. I really enjoyed those camps and Patrick Johnson recruited me and Sara Petty to come on as counselors this year.
What are you most excited for in the next few days?
Getting to know the campers and watching them grow and excel in the program.
What is one thing your campers should know about you?
That I really want them to make the most of these few days and learn things they can take with them back to high school and beyond.
