Why did you choose WMP?

Monument visits, dozens of restaurants, art exhibits.

At the white house they taught us “Being on early is on time, being on time is late, and being late…you might as well not show up.” It’s good practice for your internship and your field experiences.

I wouldn’t want all that responsibility, I enjoy the mortal life.

My parents, they are the two people who no matter what are always willing to do what it takes to push me harder and tell me not to give up on my dreams, no matter how far off they sound. Anything’s attainable with support.
Favorite city and why?
My favorite city has to be DC, it’s far better than NYC, and more diverse than London- hard to believe, but it’s true. I love the fast pace and intellectual vibe that DC has.
Favorite course of study?
Definitely journalism; it’s my niche.
Your political views?
I don’t share that aspect with the public, but one can always have fun guessing.
