Growing up as a competitive dancer I was surrounded by liberal artists, where everyone thought the same and had the exact same world-views. I went along with what my coaches and peers said, until 2016.

After Donald Trump won the Republican primary everyone around me seemed to be having meltdowns about a man worse than Hitler running for president. Worse than Hitler, really? That sounded like a big problem so I looked into it myself. Turns out that wasn’t the case. I started to disagree more and more with people I once looked up to.

So, I traded the dance studio for a newsroom. I got into Sheridan College for journalism and started my career in finding the truth.
