I’m sure you’ve noticed my name in several bylines by now, but as I head into my second week as True Blue LA’s site manager, I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself.
My father became a Dodgers fan during Fernandomania and his passion grew from there. His fandom was passed onto me at birth. I frequently attended games as a young girl and although I don’t remember much, I can remember how happy I was to be surrounded by a sea of blue. It always felt like home to me.
Growing up in the Central Valley, I was just two hours away from San Francisco. Hence, a Dodgers fan in “Giants territory”. Being the outsider never kept me quiet, though. I always showed my allegiance and safely made it out of the Giants’ three-in-five run.
Currently, I live just five miles away from Dodger Stadium. I moved to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California, where I am a junior studying journalism and marketing. USC has been a lifelong dream of mine and I am cherishing every moment I have here.
At USC, I work as a multimedia journalist and news editor for the student-run publication, Annenberg Media. At Annenberg Media, I volunteer to help out on the weekly sports show, Sports SCene. I’m not too comfortable on camera, but I’ve hosted a few baseball segments for the show.
My dream is to become a live sports producer, but I do enjoy writing and I am excited to master the craft.
Here’s a few fun facts about me (I’m usually not too good at fun facts)
- I play Fortnite with my kid brother (I’m still what they call a “newb”)
- Christian Yelich is my favorite non-Dodger
- I can sound just like Yoshi when he says his name
If you have any questions, I’ll be in the comments for a while!
