Here's a selfie of me in my apartment

Hello, my name is Deandra Gonzalez and I'm 25 years old. I am a junior at Texas State University, majoring in journalism and minoring in diversity studies. I transferred from San Antonio College after graduating with my associates in journalism. This is my first year living in San Marcos and so far I love the small town vibes and being in proximity of Austin and San Antonio! One thing I am excited about living here is floating the river in the Summer and having friends and family visit me!

My biggest career goal after college is to be a well known photojournalist for a publication like the Associated Press. I'm hoping my love for photography, traveling, recording history, and giving a voice to people will make that dream possible. In my own experience of working in the media, I see it can be very competitive but that only pushes me to be better and work harder. My passion for photojournalism has grown and improved throughout my college experience thus far.

Aside from school, I like to relax at home or go on spontaneous adventures. I don't plan often, I mostly go with the flow. I also go to a lot of concerts and live shows. Punk Rock is one of my favorite genres so I'm not afraid to go in the mosh pit or crowdsurf. I also LOVE to cook and learn new recipes. My favorite things to cook is breakfast and pasta. Overall I'm a pretty chill gal living up her college experience. Follow me on Twitter here.
