During an interview with Politico, she told her story about her start in journalism; She grew up being a political campaign junkie and thanked her parents. They were always attuned to the news and every election cycle as Florida voters. “Even though political journalism was always on display on my TV screens at home growing up, I did not realize that was what I wanted to do until teachers and friends began to tell me I was a skilled writer.” The idea clicked when she was a preteen and an avid fan of boy bands.
She saw that people had jobs just asking questions to my favorite celebrities. “But it took a trip to Washington, D.C., in high school to make me realize that political journalism was it for me. I remember thinking that it was so much cooler asking senators and members of Congress questions in an effort to hold them accountable, which also made me see the job as worthwhile public service. I still get an adrenaline rush watching impeachment and the campaign trail develop before my eyes.” Moreover, she is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
