About Me

Hi There!

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!

Written by Rhonda Alexander, MS (and current MA candidate) of DePaul University. I am passionate about writing and all things social media. I'm primarily self-taught in a lot of the various aspects of social media and I really enjoy learning about the different methods that are coming to the forefront for individuals to be able to connect with one another.
