Writing and Journalism Experience
June 2022 - Present
SACRAMENTO OBSERVER: DATA REPORTER
As a data reporter, I researched and pitched my own ideas, analyzed data that I sourced and wrote long-from stories. I'm proud of how I tackled complex subject matter and broke it down for readers in an understandable way. I developed skills like the ability to use Census data, make information requests and use DB Browser for SQLite.

As part of my study abroad experience I landed an internship at Politico Europe.
