I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Southern Studies. I spent my nights in college at The Daily Tar Heel, where I worked as the copy desk editor for two years. I also interned in the fall of 2012 at WRAL.com. After graduating, I moved down to Birmingham, Alabama, to bring my love of the South and of journalism together as a copy fellow at Southern Living magazine.
