I am passionate about developing texts that challenge my readers/viewers to think and evaluate a subject with new perspectives, as well as help them expand their views and knowledge. Through my journalistic and creative writing lenses, I enjoy creating texts that educate and entertain my audience.
When consuming media, I look for texts that make me think and help me understand different points of view. From listening to NPR News to reading the Wall Street Journal, I am constantly reading, listening, and watching materials that challenge me and push me to discover more about the world around me.
I am always in the mood to learn something new and seek to expand my knowledge and develop my abilities as a writer and content producer. I enjoy texts that sharpen my skills and introduce fresh materials to broaden my horizon.
Rowan University (2019 – ) I am a graduate student pursuing an MA in Writing. My preferred genre (for reading and writing) is fiction. I like to explore nonfiction and poetry, too! I am currently a freelance writer, editor, and content manager for ink. writing by kara zone. You can read my blogs on the ink. website linked above. I am simultaneously writing two works in progress (WIP). My master’s project is an autobiographical novel based on my experiences as a Korean adoptee in America. And my second WIP is a superhero origin story.
Montclair State University (2016 – 2018) I graduated with honors with a BA in Journalism and a minor in Chinese studies. I had the opportunity to work with the amazing professors and clinical specialists in the School of Communication and Media in developing the news broadcast, Montclair News Lab. I became an executive producer of the weekly show and gained the valuable knowledge and skills that further improved my work ethic, team management, and leadership skills. I was also a staff writer and photographer for the Montclarion.
