“The world is incredibly diverse. At Mercer, I have met people from every background imaginable.”

I hope to anchor a major news program one day, ideally ESPN’s Sportscenter, so I decided to attend Mercer for the opportunities that I would have through the Center for Collaborative Journalism. I especially like that I have been able to work alongside media professionals since my first semester on campus. Outside of class, I am active in Mercer Video Productions, the CCJ Student Advisory Board, and Mercer’s first spoken word organization, Point B.L.A.N.K. My favorite Mercer memory is when I travelled to Virginia to compete in the 2015 College Union Poetry Slam Invitational, where we placed in the top 20 in the nation.
