The Daily Orange
The Daily Orange is an award-winning independent student newspaper in Syracuse, New York. I began writing for the DO during my freshman year at Syracuse University. Since then, I have worked as a beat writer (2016), abroad columnist (2017) and staff writer for the 'News' section.

I have worked as a staff writer for the DO's News section since freshman year and have covered many a plethora of events and stories. Below are some of the most popular articles I have written.

Beat Writer: Work Wednesday (2016)
I was the 'Work Wednesday' beat writer for the DO's Pulp section, which is the lifestyle and entertainment section of the newspaper. My beat profiled individuals with interesting work experience in the Syracuse community, with a new person featured every week.
Abroad Columnist (2017)
In the spring semester of sophomore year, I went to London as part of Syracuse's study abroad program. There, I was the DO's 'Abroad' columnist for Pulp, and wrote about different news events and cultural aspects of the United Kingdom.
I wrote this story in response to the Westminster attack in London. Although I was not at the scene, I decided to report on how the city responded in the days following the attack. I discovered that London is an incredibly resilient city in times of disaster.
