Ever since she was young, she wanted to be an ER physician – that was until she took the intro to journalism course in her sophomore year. She then became a double major.
Her journalism degree, she says, has given her great opportunities such as going to China and Cuba. Last year she was awarded the Dean of Students Excellence Award for Photojournalism for a story about a pitbull who was rescued from a dogfighting ring.
In 2014, she became a paramedic and currently works at two fire departments on Long Island. It is her hope one day to bridge medicine and journalism together and communicate medicine in a simple and effective way to a general audience.
