I am a senior journalism and information science double major with a concentration in data science at the University of Maryland. I am excited to intern with The Baltimore Sun’s photo and visuals team this summer. Having been raised to make it a priority to know my history and pass it on, photography is my way of helping others document and share their stories, particularly those from historically disadvantaged communities. I’ve been doing photography since I was 16. In that time, I’ve taken photos as part of a business I started, for the UMD Black Student Union and as a reporter and editor for The Black Explosion, UMD’s newspaper for and by Black students. In 2019, I was blessed to work with the Howard Center for Investigative Journalism to capture the stories of McElderry Park residents as they discussed how climate change affected them. While COVID-19 complicated the world of photography, I focused more on data journalism, spending three months analyzing loan data for on the impact of the Paycheck Protection Program in Maryland. When I’m not doing photography, I’m listening to music or podcasts, watching true crime documentaries, or hanging with friends.

If I’m not reporting (or thinking about reporting), I’m most likely drawing, listening to music, or reading. I can’t wait to see the stories I’ll be reporting on for the Carroll County Times and The Baltimore Sun this summer.
