Hi everyone, my name is Abby Hoffman and I am a senior here at the University of Pittsburgh. I am majoring in Communication Rhetoric, as well as getting certificates in Digital Media and Public/Professional Writing. I am from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, which is "outside of Philly". Last spring semester (2017) I studied abroad for 5 months in Madrid, which was truly a life-changing experience. During the summer I interned for a public relations firm in NYC, where I worked for and met many celebrity chefs (which was amazing because I love food!) I am constantly checking social media, especially Facebook and Instagram. I look forward to spending this semester learning how to compose digital media, which I-- along with many other people around the world-- consume everyday.
