Hi guys, my name is Jappmann (pronounced Jasmine with a "p") Monga and I'm a senior Communication Rhetoric Major with an intended Creative Writing Minor and Public Professional Writing Certificate. I think I will be the first to say that I actually want to go into medicine and become a pediatric specialist. After graduation, I'm planning on attending a post-baccalaureate program to finish my pre-med requisites and then (fingers crossed) go to medical school!
Hi, everybody! My name is Lucas, and I'm a double German and Poetry major here at Pitt. I typically spend my days speed-walking and practicing my confusion with German. If you ask, I'll talk your ear off about my research in Europe this Summer and--of all things--playing cards. (I do play a mean game of Rummy, but Poker is, sadly, not in my wheelhouse.)
Hi there, I'm Jill Tyburski. I am a junior and a double major in English Writing (fiction track) and Film Studies. Apparently like many of you, I also am working towards the Digital Media Certificate! I think that experience with digital media is important to almost any career field. Plus digital media is fun and creative, and I think everyone else in the class would agree with me on that (which is why we are all in this class I think).
Hi, everyone! My name is Alyssa Hernandez and I'm a junior/senior at Pitt. I'll graduate as an english writing major with a studio arts minor, and a digital media certificate. I'm excited about taking this course because I usually stick to non-digital forms of art, such as poetry, painting, and photography. So, I hope this class will expand my creativity and help me grow as both an artist and a writer in terms of shifting to the digital world. I look forward to creating/composing with you all!
My name is Casey Taylor. I am majoring in marketing and also getting a certificate in digital media. This is my last semester here at Pitt after 9 long years of going to school. I have only been a full-time student for the last year and a half... before that I was a professional ballerina and only going to school part time at night. I am looking forward to this class and getting to work creatively in an outlet that is new to me. I am also currently working as a marketing coordinator and social media manager for Row House Cinema and Bierport in Lawrenceville - come check us out!!
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.
Hi, my name is Casey and I'm currently a senior studying English Writing and Global Studies. I decided to take Composing Digital Media to hone my writing skills on digital platforms. In my spare time I like to run and write short stories. After graduation I hope to get a job in the publishing field. I can't wait to get to know everyone this semester!
