From an early age, curiosity has fueled her thinking. In high school, she was the kid who could recite the lyrics to every new Drake song, along with all the songs he sampled to create his body of work. Now, as a multimedia journalist, she has found a focus in international affairs, as well as global culture and educational development. She has reported on a variety of topics in these areas, from Afro-Cuban religion to a small Saharawi refugee population in Spain. A self-proclaimed nerd, she enjoys learning historical and cultural context to make her stories more impactful. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, writing music reviews and relaxing bike rides.
