Expected Graduation Date: 



Background: I was born and raised in Roswell, NM, and did every extracurricular activity possible. Since being at NMSU for the last 5 years I have graduated with a Bachelor of Criminal Justice and a Bachelor in Foreign Languages (Spanish). Since being in college, I have taken a passionate interest in criminal justice and law enforcement but also traveling and photography. I am in my last academic year as a graduate student and am on track to graduate in May 2024. I am currently working on a thesis that is a content analysis on whether there is a difference in border news coverage between national media sources versus border media sources.
