I am currently a student from University of California, Santa Barbara who is graduating this year with a major in Environmental Studies and a minor in Professional Writing degree in Multimedia Communication.
The past four years that I've spent at UCSB has been spent exploring new passions and muses. I've found inspiration through the Professional Writing and Environmental Studies Programs. The Professional Writing Program has unionized a sense of creativity and expression into my life while the Environmental Studies program has introduced me to the irreplicable beauty of nature and adventure. These programs together have brought the purpose of bringing these aspects into my everyday life as well as my works.
The following content in this portfolio is more of a compilation of the works and experiences that I have gained over the years. I hope to demonstrate to you how my passions for life have been translated into my work.
In terms of professional work, I've spent my time at UCSB working with different modes of communication and marketing. Below are some skills that I've gained.
I've been given the opportunity to learn about social media marketing in some of my internships. Here, I learned how to gain the attention of specific audiences through primarily through Instagram to build a following for the companies that I've worked with.
Although I've always had an idea of what document design was, I was only recently introduced to it while taking classes of the Professional Writing Program. I've learned how to design documents using Canva, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustator.
I've always had an inclination towards web design through front-end development. Through the Professional Writing Program and my internships, I was able to hone in my skills with HTML and CSS. This webpage is an example of the application of my HTML and CSS skills.
Writing has always been a skill that I found to be necessary in life. While writing has a become a powerful medium for expressing my voice, I've also found that it is valuable in my professional life. I use my passion for writing in assisting others express their brands.

Highschool was where I spent my time exploring my passions before finding one that I was able to see myself pursuing in my personal and professional life.
