About me: I was born and raised in Detroit’s Westside, in the hard-working Polish working-class district of Warrendale. I’m a Detroit Public School graduate who struggled hard to earn my education. My pursuit of journalism came as a young child when I first started following the corruption scandal of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. My first entry into the world of journalism began with the opportunity to work for the Michigan Journal, where I covered mostly campus and local news across the Dearborn Ward. Finally, I worked my way up to news editor. In connection with my journalistic work, I had the great opportunity to write and study about many different cultures and backgrounds at the Piast Institute, which also helped me prepare for this role. So, having grown up firsthand in a close-knit neighborhood, I know the importance of delivering news and telling stories that affect local communities. And as the Breaking News editor at Patch for Metro Detroit, it’s my job to get that news across. So don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected] for news tips or your own unique experiences
