For my capstone course in the UGA College of Journalism and Mass Communication, I worked with two other multimedia reporters on a semester-long reporting process.

In November 2018 as a staff writer for The Red & Black, I visited inmates at Lee Arrendale State Prison — the largest womens prison in Georgia — to talk about the UGA-partnered Georgia Prison Beekeeping Program. Being able to interview these women is an unmatched experience. The beekeeping program still exists.
