A confidently optimistic (and humble) young woman poised to flex her talents and help others.
Spent three years studying journalism/graphic arts at Michigan State University. Am currently on hiatus but plan to return fall 2012.
Have experience as a political-beat reporter for Capital News wire service out of Lansing, MI.
Wrote broadcast script as an intern for WJBK Fox 2 News in Detroit, MI.
Was a DJ at The Impact — Michigan State's college radio station in East Lansing, MI.
Wrote articles for Michigan State University International Magazine.
Lead the design team of a small magazine assembled by a business journalism class at Michigan State.
On the side...
Created company logo/mailbox flier for a friend's small business venture in East Lansing, MI.
Designed poster/flyer for a friend's art show in Jackson, MI (twice, same friend).
Technology: proficient in Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, GarageBand (music production) and Audacity (audio editing). I also know my way around a digital camera and microphone.
End note — Am highly self-motivated and eager to learn. I stay mentally active by reading all I can (mostly non-fiction), maintaining several journals, and creating art. I'm partial to paints, ink drawings and collage.
Thank you for your time!
