As a journalism student at the University of Central Florida I want to use all of my talents and knowledge in order to help others. I want to help students who may be struggling in certain areas and just need someone who can find a way to make the material simple and fun. I believe in always trying to find a way to make school fun. I'm also originally from Bogota, Colombia and have lived in the United States for about 15 years. I enjoy meeting people from different places and cultures and hope to one day be an international investigative reporter.
