Growing up in Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania, I was always a die hard Penn State Fan. As the years went on, I found that Penn State would be my home, even if while I flirted with Rival Pitt. I'm a Freshman Journalism Major, dreaming big, and shooting for the stars. I love to be outside, whether that be hiking, running, or biking with friends and family. Feel free to reach out to me if you have a good story, or you need a friend, I'm always down for a good time! Instagram: @Philly_buch1 Twitter: @buchjackson
