Unstoppable


Like the latest Denzel Washington film, my life can be summed up as unstoppable.

In the last week alone, I started freelancing for two other publications, a blessing indeed. Before you wonder if I'm crazy for freelancing for an X number (5) of publications along with school and other extracurriculars, it is called freelancing for a reason, as in the assignments I do are up to me.

Still though, I'm back to controllable busy with college applications long and gone. There is plenty to do and enough time to it, fortunately, whether its sports spreads in Yearbook or writing a story in Newspaper. My writing still needs work(for those who are reading this as the grammar police I know), which is why I continue to write everyday.

I'm young, energetic and always ready for the next challenge. Although, I don't plan on encountering a speeding train anytime soon. (By the way, another excellent Washington film.)

Stay tuned!

Picture Perfect


I have a finally reached a major journalism milestone, my first print Miami Herald byline!

After driving to a Walgreens in Broward County to retrieve the story, I was happy to see my story in the Broward County Neighbors section. (It can be read here.)

In other news, I covered the first ever Adrenalina Skateboard Event at the Village at Gulfstream on Saturday morning. I figured since I was not taking my SAT subject tests until Dec. that I'd get to sleep in on the Nov. test date, but I ended up waking up earlier than those who took the SAT on that day.

That's definitely the life of a journalist. I just finished writing that story and now it's back to school work.

Of course, as things get easier I try to make the more challenging, so do not be surprised if you see another print byline for another publication in the works.

Stay tuned!
