I am passionate about finding creative solutions to problems. Whether it is finding the most fitting word in a sentence or translating an idea into reality, I love the challenge of the unknown. That’s why I love to learn new things because it pushes me to think differently. And with a can-do attitude, I tackle every task and give my all to it.
Currently, I am a junior at The University of Memphis pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration in Professional Writing and a minor in Creative Mass Media. I participate in the Accelerator Bachelor’s to Master’s Program where I take master-level courses.
As a writer, I believe one has to show empathy towards the reader, especially in technical writing. The words have to be simple enough to be understood without breaking into the dictionary.
As a designer, I believe one has to be all-embracing, so everyone can understand the story without the need for words— a picture, an illustration that represents a brand and its users.
My skills include creativity, organization, resourcefulness, and collaboration. Also, I like to think of myself as a critical thinker that likes problem-solving. My software experience includes MS Office, Google Workspace, Jira, Slack, Adobe Creative Cloud, and WordPress. I am also knowledgeable about SEO, email marketing, and website design. Currently, I am learning Adobe Captivate and FrameMaker.
My dream job is as an instructional designer/technical writer. I am passionate about finding creative solutions to problems and learning, and this career unites my passions. I believe one has to show empathy towards the reader/learner. The fields of technical writing and instructional design are closely related, and both aim to provide knowledge. This knowledge has to be simple enough to be understood by anyone, in this case, adults. As part of a company’s writing team or freelancing, I will simplify things to benefit clients/users. With a can-do attitude, I will tackle every task and give my all to it. My line of study will help me support the client’s effort to quality and efficiency by providing the best content and innovating solutions to improve and enhance the company’s success.
