My passion for writing started in the second grade. Back then I was probably more interested in illustrating the books that I wrote, but as time went on, writing has become a huge part of my life. In the seventh grade, I had the opportunity to take a career assessment test. After answering questions on my interests and being quizzed on my knowledge, I was told that I should become a journalist. Most of my time in high school was spent realizing that this was a legitimate profession and I really could do what I loved for a living.
I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work for Patch.com and mesh all of my interests. I get to write, in my two favorite cities and about things that I love (such as Pet of the Week and At The Rust Belt). In May of 2010, I earned my Associates Degree from OCC in Liberal Arts. Nowadays, I spend much of my time working toward a Bachelors in Journalism at Wayne State University.
