I am a student at Southern Illinois University Carbondale in my junior year. I am a double degree student in journalism and philosophy. I expect to graduate in Spring of 2017, after which I wish to attend to law school and earn a degree there as well. Upon graduating law school, I plan to work at a firm until I feel I have gained the competencies to run my own firm, at which point I will venture to do so.
Aside from career aspirations I have a variety of hobbies I am interested in. I enjoy playing Tennis, tossing a Frisbee and climbing (buildings specifically). When the weather isn’t so agreeable I like to be cooped up indoors with a movie or TV series on and friends nearby.
Most notable among my pastimes, is my affinity for playing and analyzing video games. I enjoy playing them for the atmospheres I am able to experience and the worlds I am free to explore. Also, I love the themes, symbolism and commentaries made by video games.
My journalistic desire, if my law school goals do not pan out, is to take up a career in analyzing and reviewing video games. I feel like the amazing storytelling capabilities of video games is often under appreciated by the masses. I want to highlight the deeper meanings video games possess so larger audiences can reach the level of admiration that I hold for them.
