I have a strong background in creating graphics for various projects inside out outside of Grady. I have worked with The Georgia Club, a local country club to rebrand their instagram page designing a number of graphics. I have also teamed up with a local nonprofit, The Bee Club for Girls to create a number of original graphics for their programs, events and inhouse projects. Recently I have been accepted into the Creative Circus, a summer program in Atlanta for creatives that are building their portfolios with the best the industry has to offer. As a primary Journalism major I have a skillset in writing and editing. I believe in my role as a graphics lead and copy write assistant will be best in my skill set while I also give my groupmates a helping hand whenever and wherever best needed.

I have experience in most of the Adobe Creative Suite and recently have taken New Media Production becoming proficient in HTML and CSS. Having been a Resident Assistant for 2 ½ years now, I have been able to have a close relationship with three generations of freshmen. Through my RA experience currently, I have access to about 300-400 freshmen who could give great opinion on what is needed for them now or what they wish they needed as beginning freshmen. Having personal insight into this year’s freshman class will be very vital and imperative for how the final project will look.

As a digital marketing major, I have a lot of experience conducting marketing campaigns and strategy. As a result, I hope to transfer this knowledge to this project by ensuring our project stays on task and is promoted strategically to our target market.

As an International Affairs major and future New Media Certificate recipient that has three internships under her belt, I’ve had the opportunity to learn a plethora of skills that include copywriting, app development, digital marketing, research and analytics. Currently, I’m a copywriter for Grady’s student run advertising and public relations agency, Talking Dog. I’m also taking an app development class to broaden my skills in modern programming languages such as Swift.

A building is only as good as the foundation it is built on. We learn early as children from the three little pigs that a strong foundation is vital to continuance. We at Onboard UGA are that strong and important foundation that incoming freshmen need to not only continue to want to come back to UGA and college in general, but also finish strong towards graduation.
