Hello. My name is Jose Zepeda. I am freshman in the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign majoring in Journalism and minoring in Political Science. I live in the Chicago Southwest Suburbs.

I have written articles for the Daily Illini and have worked as a anchor for the St. Laurence High School Broadcast Journalism club. I have also worked as a photographer, camera operator, and sports anchor (soccer) for the St. Laurence Sports Media Club.

Outside of school, I have experience as a Lifeguard for the Bridgeview Park District Community Pool.

My hobbies include running, swimming, biking, and video gaming. I am also a big car enthusiast.
