She worked with the Inkspot as a staff reporter her sophomore year and as a senior reporter her senior year. I am interested in Pursuing Journalism at the University of Missouri next year. My biggest pet peeve When people get way too close to me when they're talking. My guilty pleasures Watching reality TV and eating hash browns for dinner.
