“Write like it matters, and it will.” -Libba Bray
I am using this website as a portfolio of my writing and other things I do as I embark on my journey to becoming a journalist.
I am a senior at Florida Gulf Coast University studying journalism. I haven’t quite found my place in the journalism world, but I’ll keep searching.
Here’s what I’ve been up to:
Since I started at FGCU in Fall 2015, I have written a lot of different things in a lot of different styles. Practice makes perfect, and that’s my goal.
Over the summer of 2016, I interned at a small weekly newspaper called the Gilchrist County Journal where I wrote weekly stories, pitched story ideas, attended bi-weekly school board meetings and worked with InDesign to layout the newspaper’s pages.
Over the summer of 2017 I interned at a start-up company in Fort Myers, Florida called HelloSWFL. This was a great experience for me as I was able to explore my creativity throughout the summer. During my internship I acquired many new skills like being on camera and video editing on Adobe Premiere and After Effects. As well as experimenting and using new equipment to tell stories, like Go Pro’s and 360 cameras.
After interning at HelloSWFL, I was offered a job and now work there as a part-time employee while I finish school.
All of my journeys are taking me somewhere, even though I have no idea where, but I’ll keep you updated.
I was created to create.
