LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: CAN I PLEASE HAVE YOUR ATTENTION? I’VE JUST BEEN HANDED AN URGENT AND HORRIFYING NEWS STORY. I NEED ALL OF YOU TO STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND LISTEN…

I’ve always wanted to be a newscaster. Martha MacCallum, Nancy Grace, and Laura McKeeman (former sister queen/Miss Florida 2012/Fox Sports reporter—yes, girl crush) are all female TV personalities I look up to, particularly for their effortless eloquence. Quite a few Miss Americas, Tawny Little and Gretchen Carlson for example, have also worked in the wide world of Broadcast Journalism. I’ve been told that I have a pleasant “speaking voice” (thanks?) and exhibit reporter-esque articulation; however, it was never a path I chose to explore in college.
