But my friends call me Clojo.
I am an Arizona native. Raised in Tempe, AZ, I've realized that 120 degree summers is just one of those things you never get used to.
I graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in May 2019 with a bachelors in journalism, specializing in digital storytelling. I also graduated with a minor in Spanish and a minor in philosophy.
I am currently pursuing a masters degree in investigative journalism at the Cronkite School and expect to graduate in December 2020.
While I do not consider myself bilingual yet, I am working everyday to become fluent in Spanish as I believe the most influential stories transcend in multiple languages and cultures. Currently I would describe my Spanish level as intermediate conversational.
When I'm not chasing a story, I enjoying teaching and practicing yoga, binge-watching Netflix and any outdoors activity (when it's not too hot).
