Leighanne Muñoz, Staff Writer

Leighanne Muñoz is finishing her first year with  The Round Up and is a Staff Writer. She is entering her sophomore year and second semester at New Mexico State University and is majoring in Journalism with a minor in Creative Writing. She was born and raised in Las Cruces, NM and has 5 siblings.

She fell in love with writing around the 3rd grade while writing short stories. From there, she continued to write short stories and planned to become a movie script writer throughout middle school. In high school, she took her first journalism class and everything changed from there. Her storytelling transformed into something else and that’s when she realized she knew what she needed to study. Activism became a huge part of this and is something she is incredibly passionate about from women’s rights to gun safety.

Leighanne enjoys reading, writing, and binge watching shows. She also likes to read astrology charts and collect crystals. Some of her favorite music includes pop, R&B, rap, and rock and roll. Her favorite artists include Ariana Grande, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, and the Eagles. Moving forward, she hopes to learn a lot from The Round Up that she can apply to her future journalism endeavors.
