Hello Everybody!

I am almost done with my transfer degree and I am starting a one year certificate in Multimedia Design. When I’m done with my degree I would like to find a job where my media skills can be used. I’m still figuring out what kind of job I’d like to have, so instead of transferring to a four year college, I am exploring options in multimedia here at LCC. One thing I like about multimedia is the flexibility I might be able to have working from home some day. In the summer I took a writing class and one of my assignments was to turn my final essay into a multi-modal project. All I had was an iPad with an iMovie app and I was surprised how much I enjoyed translating the written essay into a visual and musical project.

I have been part of a Japanese Taiko drumming troupe for thirteen years now. I started out as a student and as I got more experienced I took on teaching responsibilities such as helping teach the younger team members and choreographing routines. I really enjoy performing with my other college-age team mates because it’s challenging. I also create drumming tutorial videos for the team website. I look forward to doing this more effectively.

    Hi HL! I feel like you choosing to explore multimedia is a good idea, I myself am a bit unsure in what I’m going to do exactly and that’s why I’m doing various certificates and programs as well. The final assignment you spoke about sounded like a lot of fun but challenging at the same time but I’m glad it peeked your interest in our field. I also found it amazing how you’re part of a Japanese taiko drumming troupe, I don’t know much about those kind of drums even though I’m a big fan of Japanese culture, so I’ll definitely have to look into it as well. Hope to work with you sometime and enjoy the class together.

    I am also not sure what career I want to pursue, and have decided to dabble in Multimedia as well, and have really enjoyed it so far. I originally started at LCC as a Journalism major and decided to double-major in Media Arts this year. The way I see it, design skills can carry over into almost any industry you choose.

    It’s way cool that you teach Japanese taiko drumming, I bet that is super fun.
