How are you using the skills that you learned at Moody in your current position?
I’m doing so much writing, so I’m using what I learned in my journalism classes and making sure that my articles sound clear and concise while also making sure my audience is engaged. I’m also putting my video and photojournalism skills to use, capturing the spirit of the College of Fine Arts.
What do you miss most about Moody College?
Learning! I miss listening to my professors’ experiences and hearing their knowledge and their successes. I also definitely miss Cappy Café and their coffee.
What was your first job out of college?
My current job is actually my first job right out of college! I started three days before the pandemic started, and then I spent the next year and a half navigating my career from home. Now that I’m back on campus, it feels great to finally put the skills I’ve learned throughout the year to use, and I’m hoping I can create more visual content to really showcase what the College of Fine Arts is doing.
Which classes/professors helped the most?
Dennis Darling, Eli Reed and Donna DeCesare really shaped the visual journalist that I am today. I learned so much from them and how they viewed the world through their lenses.They’re incredibly inspiring and I hope others consider taking their classes and keeping visual journalism alive.
Global education is important because it puts you in a creative space that you would never really think of being in in the first place.
