I was born and raised in a small town 30 miles east of Dallas, Terrell, Texas. I took a broadcast journalism class during high school and loved it, which sparked my interest in a career path for the first time. So, I applied to the University of Texas at Austin since it had one of the top journalism schools in the nation.
I got accepted. HOOK ‘EM. August 2005 rolled around, and for the first time in my life, I moved away from my small town of Terrell, where I knew everyone, to a college town where I knew no one. It was scary at first but ended up being fantastic. I believe actual growth happens when you can take a step out of your comfort zone.
