Supply Chain Management Promotion Project
The purpose of this project was to increase awareness among NSU students of a new major in the Business College – Supply Chain Management. First, we had to determine what the level of awareness among students was and then work to raise that level. As a member of the Communications Team, I helped to design and write surveys, which we then distributed, proctored, and re-gathered. Then I, personally, compiled research statistics based on the completed surveys, generated a written report and PowerPoint presentation based on those findings, and then presented the report and PowerPoint to fellow students, professors, and deans
Help-in-Crisis Commercial Donation
In April 2009, I approached the local Help-in-Crisis office with a proposal to produce a commercial, which I would donate to the organization. I then consulted with the client about the message that they would most like to convey. They decided that they would like a commercial featuring local male celebrities that would create a positive social norm regarding the relationship between men and women. The organization provided the contact information for the celebrities and developed the idea of the “I know” campaign. I then met with the celebrities and filmed their contributions. I proceeded to edit and produce the final works, and then presented the commercials to the organization as a donation.
Currently, I am filming for my research video entitled “What is Graphic Design: Beyond the Definition.” This video is an attempt to document the average person’s understanding and opinions of the graphic design industry. Upon completion I will present the video at the Honors Senior Seminar.
Over the years I have volunteered at the Sterling Retirement House, tutored students in algebra, decorated for the junior and senior proms for a local high school, and decorated for multiple functions for the NSU Social Dance Society.
