I am a junior at Marquette University in Milwaukee currently studying abroad at City University in London, England after having served as the sports editor for the school newspaper, the Marquette Tribune last semester. I wrote, read and edited stories as well as took pictures and designed layouts for pages. I was in charge of a staff of 10 people on the sports desk and was responsible for assigning stories and photo opportunities to the reporters and photographers.
When I am not at Marquette, I live in Worth, Illinois, a suburb 20 minutes away from Chicago. I originally hail from Guadalajara, Mexico, otherwise known as “la perla del occidente” or the “pearl of the west” in spanish. I moved to the United States in 1997 when I was six years old. I am fluent in both English and Spanish and can read and write in both langauges.
On the personal side, I am an avid sports fan and follow all sorts of sports from football and basketball to rugby and volleyball. My passion, however, is soccer. I have been playing and watching since I was two years old. I am currently an intern at the Milwaukee Wave professional indoor soccer team where I am responsible for writing game previews, game notes and press releases.
