Welcome to my online portfolio/online resume. I am a DePaul student, pursuing my MA in the College of Communications. My focus is Online Print Journalism primarily because I’ve always been a writer.
When I finish this program in November 2011, I will have completed the requirements for my second Masters Degree at DePaul University. My first Masters degree was in the Interdisciplinary Studies Program. I divided my concentration between Marketing and Creative writing.
You would be correct if you assumed that I decided to pursue a second Masters degree because I didn’t get what I was looking for with the first one.
The IDS (Interdisciplinary Studies) program gave me the opportunity to create a program that allowed me to choose classes that would enhance my life and career goals. At the time, all I knew was that I wanted to write but I didn’t have a real plan on how to make that happen.
The Journalism program has brought everything into focus for me and given me a real opportunity to design my program. The College of Communication’s School of ..Journalism has practically given me a road map that will help me reach my goal of becoming a multimedia health and wellness journalist.
I am now enjoying an incredible opportunity to intern at CBS 2 Chicago and learn aspects of media that make me jump out of bed in the morning! I absolutely love what and how I’m learning.
This amazing second chance I’ve been given to pursue a second Masters degree will not go to waste-that’s for sure. This second opportunity that I’ve been given to “make it happen” is going to change my life and in turn help me change the lives of others. I intend to show others-through my journey and the knowledge I’ve gained-that anything is possible if you’re really willing to step out and just go for it! If you’re still breathing, there’s nothing to stop you from trying!
