I am currently a student at Baruch College in New York City and I am majoring in journalism.
I  graduated from Valley Stream North High School. Being an editor and a reporter for the North Star, Valley Stream North High School's student newspaper, has given me experience on deadlines and what may be in store for me in the future. In addition to working on my school's newspaper, I have contributed to the Malverne/West Hempstead Herald. So far in my journalism career I have interviewed a few celebrities, including Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke from the Dukes of Hazards,) KTU radio DJ and freestyle artist Judy Torres, Kim Sozzi, WNBC news anchor Sue Simmons, J-Woww from the Jersey Shore and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Another big part of my life is volunteering. For the past five years I have volunteered at the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Metro New York. I have organized my own fundraiser for this foundation and it was a huge success. I Currently work at the UPS Store of Franklin Square, where we pack and ship your packages also well as all your printing needs. I look forward to working with Malverne-West Hempstead Patch and bringing the news of Malverne and West Hempstead into your homes!
