After Patricia was told by her high school counselor that there was no way she could major in Ginger Rogers movies, journalism was easily her next choice. She became editor in chief of her high school paper after only one semester.

Though she’s interested in ballet, photography, and her own sewing and fashion blog, journalism is her true passion.
