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.
