WELCOME TO MY SKILLS & WORK PORTFOLIO
Welcome, through this portfolio you will be able to get a better sense of who I am and understand how I would be a good fit at the UBC Bachelor of Media Studies program.
I am a current high school student attending Alexander Academy in downtown Vancouver. I am very passionate about helping my community and am open to new experiences. In my free time, I love to read, write, watch films, and explore the world around me. I am not afraid of change and am able to persevere through difficult situations. My passion for communications and media has brought me to the Bachelor of Media Studies program at UBC, which I feel will help me receive the skills I need for my future career.

A Glimpse Into My Work
TRUE STORIES PODCAST
Through this podcast me and my friend wanted to discuss some global issues in order to bring awareness to these topics. In each podcast we choose two different news article relating to the global issue at hand and use them to guide our discussion about the situations. We have uploaded the podcast onto buzzsprout.com where our podcast can be accessed through the public. This whole experience has really thought me the importance media has on activism and education in order to help bring positive changes to our world.
