However, Macy embraces her diverse background and exudes positivity and inclusivity. During her free time, Macy enjoys dancing both to Afro beats and Hispanic dances. Macy schedules self care time by going to weekly dance classes that offer Salsa and Afro-Cuban musicality.
My first attempt in journalism would be when I wrote a story that was published on BG's Falcon Media page. I wrote this story for one of my journalism classes, it was a profile story package. I plan to use this website to upload all of my future stories and journalism experiences.
In being a part of BG24, I have learned so much. This semester was my first time being in this student org, and I have already done a VO Story for the weekly show. I am able to experience what journalism is really like and can use what I have been learning in the real world. With that, I love BG24 and I am excited for what is to come within my journey.
