Years ago, I started writing for my high school's paper, and I fell in love with it. I became editor-in-chief and took the paper to places that the school never would have dreamed it would go. I introduced the students and teachers to creative, unique, fresh and original content. I showed my staff that our little paper didn't have to report on the same bland topics week after week. I built a paper that was a diverse as the student body it was written for. I continued to write after graduation and graduated with my Journalism degree from Cal State Long Beach. I have since done freelance work and written various articles for AOL and other websites. I have also done some work on children's books, including a series based on my own kids. I have tackled subjects ranging from fashion to sports and unemployment to cooking and beyond! I refuse to back down from an assignment! Writing is sometimes challenging, but it is always fun. All these years later, and my love for writing still grows!
