Social Media Chops

As a graduate student in the Master of Communication in Digital Media program at the University of Washington in Seattle, I began plying the waters of the social media landscape as well as delving into the nuts and bolts of the major platforms out there. My particular interests included optional seminars in the ICTD (Information and Communications Technologies in Developing Countries), Human-centered design and engineering, and online publishing. I’ve been the community manager for non-profit organizations such as ILAE (the International Leadership Academy of Ethiopia, a private college preparatory school for deserving Ethiopian students of all backgrounds) and the Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center at the University of Washington.
