By Alex Abele
Hello, my name is Alex Abele! I am a dual enrolled student who has been taking classes at the University of Oregon over the past year and now enrolled at Lane. I am currently an undecided major, but after taking a few courses about journalism and media studies, I am exploring this area of interest more through this course. I was initially interested in sports journalism when I started taking journalism classes at Oregon, but since then my interests have diversified. I am looking to not only learn more, but also improve my computer and multimedia skills through this course. Despite the current safety precautions resulting in remote learning, I am still excited to learn and explore the possibilities of multimedia studies.
A little more about me: I was born in the UK, and grew up in Southern California in Ventura county. I always lived close to the coast, which always made me close to activities involving water. I love swimming, water polo, rafting, fishing, and just about anything involving being close to a body of water. Aside from aquatic sports, I can land sports too, I love to shoot hoops, skateboard, and go for walks in nature. I identify as a night person and I am bilingual (Spanish) and biracial (Asian-American). I am curious by nature, so I ask lots of questions. So, if you have any questions about me, do not hesitate to ask:)
