Experience

Summary

I began writing my senior year of high school; two out of four of the first articles I ever wrote were nominated for awards. Since then, I have made media my career focus, studying it on an educational level at college and a personal level at home.

Work history

Compass News
Staff Writer/ Community Manager/ Social Media Manager
I wrote editorials and feature articles consistently for the Compass News. I also spearheaded their first ever social media division, reached out to demographics that were under-represented in our area and expanded our audience base.
Media/ Promotion
I am in charge of creating media for the Mystical Yoga Farm website. This includes curating images and creating flyers for both online and face-to-face promotion. Photography and video product are part of my duties here also.

Peace in the Olive Grove

I spoke to a young Palestinian student at my college about her first-hand experiences of living in war-torn Palestine. The interview provides and in-depth personal profile while the article provides a bigger picture of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

What I read

I read blogs on health, motivation, social justice, new tech, spirituality, and anything else that expands my horizon. The books I read are usually philosophical or cultural in nature, but also include books on increasing productivity.

Side projects

I mange my own blog at wordpress.com. I have also begun establishing a community organizing company based around health and wellness called Conscious Community Living. Beyond that, I have collaborated with other individuals on numerous media projects.

Ideal team

When it comes to brainstorming new ideas, I thrive in environments where I can engage with others, offer inspiration and spread enthusiasm. When it comes to getting my individual work done, I work most efficiently on my own.
