Occupation: Student/Radio DJ

After graduating from Chrysalis, I started a new journey by choosing to attend the University of Kansas. I had a difficult time adjusting to college life freshman year, so I came home for a semester and attended Bellevue Community College before going back to Kansas.

Last summer, I interned at 710 ESPN Radio in downtown Seattle, which was an awesome experience for me. I mainly edited audio from the broadcast, but also met a lot of cool people like former Mariner Jay Buhner.

I am currently a junior working on getting my BGS in English with a Creative Writing emphasis along with minoring in Journalism. I got involved with the school radio station, 90.7 KJHK, the spring of 2012 and have been working there since. I started off as a regular rotation DJ but now am the host of a special program for the station called Hip-Hop Hype.

When I am done with school, I hope to work as a writer for a sports or music magazine. If that doesn’t work out, I would like to work for a sports or music radio station in Seattle.
