My name is Jamie Hampton and I am 20 years young. I was born in Gillette, Wyoming but consider Cheyenne, Wyoming to be my hometown since I moved there when I was about three years old. I am currently attending the University of Wyoming and studying journalism. I found my passion for journalism at a young age when I read my first copy of Alternative Press magazine while I was in the 5th grade. It has been my dream ever since to work for a magazine writing features.

I decided to start this blog in order to enhance my online presence and be able to showcase all of my work in different medias. I have always been a strong believer in how important the internet is to our professional lives and I am hoping that this blog will help me show future employers what I am capable of.

While journalism has been and continues to be a huge part of who I am, I also find time to partake in some hobbies. I particularly like to go to concerts with my friends, watch football, take hikes (Wyoming’s beauty is perfect for this) and spend time with my family.
