Since a 7th-grade future careers assignment, I’ve known that I want to write. I was never quite sure what I wanted to write, and I still haven’t landed on anything yet, but nothing has come as easy to me as writing.
Eventually that drive to write brought me to Toronto Metropolitan University’s School of Journalism, where I could write about anyone or anything that had a story to tell. I felt drawn to journalism due to the ever-changing variety of the stories to tell and the methods by which journalists can use to tell them.
Aside from writing, one of my biggest passions has always been music. For me, listening to music has been a way to connect with the past and remember what life was like when I was avidly listening to a song. From hearing my dad play classic rock during car rides, to discovering The Beatles in 8th grade, to diving into the depths of alt-rock when I began university, music has always been a staple in my life. Since 2020 I’ve taught myself to play the bass, which is how I spend a lot of my free time.
If I’m not writing or playing bass, you’ll find me reading, longboarding, walking around my neighbourhood, or vibing with my cat, Cheddar Jalapeño.
