How To Start Your Journalism Career After College

I am nowhere near an award-winning journalist, but I’ve come a long way from the girl whose college professor said word-for-word “I would never hire you.”

Granted, I skipped a lot of class and half-assed my homework assignments… But come on, I was 18. Give me a break.

Now, I’m writing for Locale Magazine and get all the perks of a journalist like free concert tickets, dinners, and hotel rooms in exchange for an article reviewing the product, band, or location. Once you establish a name for yourself in the writing world, businesses will gladly treat you like royalty because they understand the weight of your opinion.

  • Today my Papa passed away... I'll always miss the days you showed up to our house with women's sunglasses on and awkwardly hummed whenever it got quiet. It saddens me that I couldn't say one last goodbye before I moved back, but at least we got to be roomies for a while. Roll tide and I'll see you again one day ❤️
  • When you don't know the words to the song so you just start yawning. #weddingcrashers #amber #quickpitcheck
  • Missing home and these two turds. Thank you for teaching me that Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch is actually @markwahlberg. #mindblown
  • In 2017, I will have crossed 5 countries off my bucket list, quit my desk job, started my own business, made it to my dog's first birthday without checking into a mental institution, launched a blog that has opened up some incredible doors, and had the opportunity to sit down with a number of influential public figures. I have no idea what 2018 will bring but I can't wait to find out. ❤️
  • Keep your friends close and your bitches closer
  • When the hell did my baby brother get so tall.... Thanks for nerding out with me in @tulummexico!
