Fish market draws record numbers of tourists
Throughout the academic year 2014-15, my roommate and I participated in Ohio State's Second-Year Transformational Experience Program, through which we were both awarded a STEP Fellowship. With the help of our STEP faculty adviser, the Office of International Affairs, and the STEP Administration, we successfully developed a project idea, drafted a proposal, researched travel details, and budgeted for a trip abroad.
As part of this project, we designed and managed a travel and culinary blog, which we updated throughout our 10-day trip to the island nation of Singapore.

For my multimedia journalism midterm, I was tasked with finding a person or group to profile for a photo and audio story. I chose the Ohio State Women in Engineering TECHie Bytes team, a group of young girls mentored by female engineering students who compete in Lego League competitions throughout the year.
After attending a practice during which the girls were assembling portions of the robot they will eventually take to competition, I learned more about why these students are interested in science and math, and why it's so important that women know STEM fields are open to them as viable career options.
Selected photos taken for my Comm 3226 (multimedia journalism) course during Autumn Semester 2015.
When I first enrolled in English 2269, I was unsure of what exactly it was that we would be doing in this course. From a brief reading of the syllabus, I knew that the class was going to be primarily project-based, which was something I was used to after taking an honors digital photography class last year.
I hadn’t really heard anything bad about the class prior to signing up; however, I had also not heard anyone praise the class either. It was listed as a prerequisite for some of my other journalism courses, so if I am being completely honest, that was my reasoning for taking this course. Although it was a requirement, it was one I didn’t mind having to take, as the course material looked interesting and I thought that, in this class, I would have the opportunity to learn about a variety of digital mediums.
Final - Open Genre Project: Photos from the OSU vs. Michigan Game (11.29.14)
For my final open genre project, I decided to return to the first unit that we explored in this course—the photography unit. Having taken a digital photography course last year, this unit was by far the most comfortable and familiar to me.
Certain images have a potency that, for better or for worse, cause them to remain with us long after we tear our eyes away from the canvas, computer monitor, or newspaper page. Whether these images haunt or inspire us, terrify us or give us hope, for some inexplicable reason, they have acquired the power to penetrate the emotional numbness we often feel toward the world around us.
What sets these specific images apart from the thousands of others that we see every day? Why do we remember some images better than others? Why are some images still prevalent in our culture today while others have faded into obscurity?
Approaching this photo essay assignment, I decided to delve further into the concept of persistence of image. By transplanting a selection of well-known images from a variety of classic movies into the modern-day surroundings of OSU’s campus, I hope to challenge my audience to consider the legacy of powerful images and icons, their persistence throughout changing times, and their continued cultural significance in our society today.
