First Things First

Hey there. So you’ve come to this page to find out about something (me, I would have to guess). Well, truth be told, I am many things. I am an entrepreneur, a creator, an artist, a student, a communicator, at times a leader, and always a human. I work as a Spanish and Writing tutor for Ball State University, where I am finishing my last semester as a Telecommunications major. I also create commercials and films through my two businesses. I am always looking forward to the future and to what I hope to become, but I am happy to be who I am right now.

Social Media Marketing and Me

Now that you know about me, let’s talk social media marketing. Fortunately, you also happen to know what social media is, so we’ll start with why using social media for marketing interests me. First of all, social media marketing is pertinent to us all because of the prevalence that social media has in our lives today. When I see a crowdfunding ad on my Facebook page that causes me to donate to that cause, when I base my opinions of a product off of a video one of my friends has posted, I can feel the power of social media marketing and its ability to influence us all. The other reason that social media marketing is important to me is evening more exciting and more personal. As you have read, I co-own two small businesses, and I believe that social media marketing could play a huge role in their growth right now and in the future.

A Bonus

You’re still here? Well you deserve a special fact about me, then. Here it is: I wear contacts. The thing is, they only correct the imperfections of the lenses of my eyes, bringing my vision up to 20/40 in my left eye and 20/90 in my right. The real special fact is that my poor vision is due to a genetically inherited disease in my retina. This disease creates cysts within my retinas, resulting in my inhibited vision. Perhaps more troubling than this, though, is the possibility that I may one day go blind on account of those cysts. I know, cheery special fact. I like to think of it as a challenge to be overcome, one that strengthens my character and makes me a different, hopefully better person than a me without the disease. And I could have been born blind. Who knows? Perhaps having an eye disease helps give me a unique perspective on life.
