Being born and raised in Connecticut, I learned early on the importance of striving to do your best. Through my participation in the high school band, the track team and other academic clubs, I was provided the opportunity to develop my many talents. I was also fortunate to travel to Europe to appreciate various cultures. Being a graduate of Communications at Sacred Heart University led me to pursue my aspirations to become a broadcast journalist. Also, majoring in the Fine Arts at UConn, led me to pursue my aspirations to become a freelance illustrator. With support from friends, family and professional guidance, I look forward to achieving my goals.
