AN INTRODUCTION:

PERSONAL STATEMENT

As a young woman living and breathing in a “digital native” era, I have grown up alongside media. Through my teenage years, I rejected most advertising because of the message it sent women  about where we belonged in the world and how we should look.  It wasn’t until taking a “media ethics” course in the world-renowned Hussman School of Journalism and Media at UNC Chapel Hill that I realized that advertising could do a whole lot of good with the right people involved. Not only this, but the world of advertising could provide an area where I could unleash the creative energy that has been with me since I could hold a crayola washable marker.  

It is for these reasons that I decided to pursue majoring in both advertising/public relations and psychology and also a minor in women and gender studies.  As a college senior on the job hunt, I strive to not only bring my creativity into whatever job I end up in, but to combine my areas of study to infuse empathy wherever I can.  This website, though it has a simplistic, black and white aesthetic, provides a canvas that does not distract from all of the colors and textures that occur in my mind. I love to create anything and everything- from spending hours making playlists for every type of day to designing my own t shirt brand.  I have a ridiculous amount of interests and ideas overflowing in the notes app on my iphone, and I’d love nothing more than to share them with you.
