The first article I ever wrote was awful. It was so bad my managing editor cut it from the student newspaper. He told me the story needed “time to develop,” which was a kind way to say it was absolute garbage.
That was six years ago, I haven't had a story cut since.
Currently, I'm a reporter for The Southeast Asia Globe covering news and the environment. I'm based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and will be passionately reporting on topics, such as: coastal conditions, renewable energy development, water resources and forest health. Before joining The Globe, I covered the environment for The Arizona Republic and the USA TODAY network.
I graduated from Elon University in 2020 with a B.A. in journalism and international relations. So far, my reporting career has taken me to leprosy colonies in Brazil, refugee camps in Jordan, mass protests in Morocco, Confederate rallies in the South and so many other incredible places. On the field, I conduct interviews, take photos, record video and break news on social media. Off the field, I create data visualizations, produce multimedia story packages and craft social media strategies.
