There’s a story to be told in everyone. This is the reason I was so eager to get into journalism. I found my passion for writing stories when I was about 14 years old. As years progressed, I turned my passion into my first paying job.
I worked for a Chicagoland newspaper called New Expression. I was so excited when my first story was published. There was no other feeling, I felt powerful. I felt that I was on the right track for what would be my career. It wasn’t until I attended Northwestern University where my interest to pursue a traditional reporting job changed. The journalism and media world was also taking a new milestone as well and everything became digital. It’s now the method of communication, how we get information, how we do business and so on and so on. Digital is slowly becoming apart of the everyday life. I soon discovered that I could also tell someone’s story with a career in marketing communications. In no time, I would have a handful of internships in public relations and marketing.
Social media has manifested into the lives of almost every professional, individual and brand. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account. I wanted this site to serve as a learning tool for those trying to gain a career or need help to utilize digital for marketing.
