Hi, I'm Erin. Thanks for visiting my portfolio!
I've always had a passion for writing. Whether it was a creative fiction story for a class assignment or a lengthy journal entry, I love putting pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard) and producing creative work.
In my sophomore year of high school, I was introduced to journalism simply because I needed another class to fit into my schedule. By my senior year, I was the editor-in-chief of the student newspaper — The Chronicle — and anchored our daily morning announcements video.
At Penn State, I made the most of my free time outside of classes. From writing for Penn State Student Affairs to interning at the Centre Daily Times to serving as the news editor of The Daily Collegian, I gained valuable reporting, editing and leadership experience.
Today, that passion for hard-news reporting remains strong. However, I am now pursuing another passion: aviation. I began pilot training in January 2023 at United Aviate Academy, where I'm learning how to fly planes in hopes of eventually becoming a United Airlines pilot.
When I'm not writing or learning about airplanes, I enjoy playing guitar and piano, hiking mountains, taking photos and acrylic painting.
