I began my journalism career as a staff writer for the Broadneck Tribruin at Broadneck High School. I am currently a Broadcast Journalism student at the University of South Carolina. I am also apart of Student Gamecock Television (SGTV). I have covered Gamecock sporting events behind the camera, reported the news on live broadcasts and appeared on our roundtable sports show. However, the greatest accomplishment has been hosting and producing SGTV's Hammered with Questions. Hammered with Questions is a show where two hosts interview drunk college kids outside the bars of Columbia, South Carolina. Although this show is not real journalism, I learned valuable editing, producing, leadership and hosting skills.
