I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I received my bachelors degree in May 2018 with a double-major in communication and Spanish.
Since I was a child I've had a strong interest in news reporting, however, it was not until my enrollment in a digital journalism course at UIC that I was truly inspired and motivated to further explore the field and actually practice journalism.
During my time at UIC I gained experience in news writing and took the personal initiative to produce my own news content beyond of classroom wall. Today I am eager to jumpstart a career in the field of broadcast journalism.
What is your current career title or dream job?
I am currently an intern with Chicago Tonight at WTTW-11, gaining hands-on experience in the daily production of a live news show.
My ultimate goal is to take upon the role of an on-air news reporter.
