Major: English Journalism
I am a third-year English Journalism major and an aspiring news anchor. I am now the News and Managing Editor for the Spectator focusing on general, breaking, and political news stories. Writing has always been my passion and I plan to continue growing in this field to deliver information to people around the world successfully. Along with journalism, I was nominated treasurer for the Georgia College Press Association in 2020, and I am the blogger for the VSU Student Recreation Center’s Wellness page. My other hobbies include studying astrology, trying new foods, and traveling.

This is Isabella’s third semester as the copy editor for The Spectator. She is from Saint Petersburg, Florida and has been at VSU since August 2017. She wrote her first column in spring 2019 and wrote stories for The Spectator in fall 2019. During that time, she was an accounting major. However, she learned quickly that writing and editing are what she is truly passionate about. When she is not editing for The Spectator, she likes to watch films and T.V. shows, go horse-back riding and spend time with friends and family.

Hi, everyone! This is my first year serving as Berliner Editor for The Spectator after serving my first year on campus as a staff writer. I am from the small town of Hazlehurst, GA, right in the middle of nowhere. Being on The Spectator has given me a platform to voice my love for entertainment and pop culture, among helping me develop other skills. When I am not working for The Spectator, I am a Sullivan Scholar, volunteer for Campus Activities Board, Senior Board Member for the Georgia College Press Association, and Secretary for Future Black Educators. After graduating, I hope to become a high school English teacher and journalism advisor.
