After a great deal of introspective deliberation and a strong desire to bridge my personal interest in media communication with my professional career aspirations, I decided to return to college and work toward earning my Bachelor of Science degree. From a young age, I have been driven to learn everything I could about music, recording, and media. While in high school and college I had the opportunity to train in radio broadcasting and recording and produced several audio projects. While working at a managed mental health care facility I used my experience to write, voice over, and record content for a music on hold system as a side project. As a Program Coordinator for a non-profit, I wrote public service announcements, press releases, grant proposals, and articles that were published in newspapers, newsletters, and radio stations. While working with grant programs in county government, our WIC program wanted to create peer-to-peer breastfeeding support videos, so I created four videos with no budget that are still being watched by WIC clients. I also created numerous brochures, flyers, PowerPoint presentations and other publications that were used as marketing materials for our outreach activities. Each of these opportunities instilled in me a desire to go further in Media Communications and the online program offered through Full Sail will help me to achieve my goals and prepare me for a career that is more closely aligned to my personal interests.
