Initiative

Student Showcase

The Student Showcase has been a extra project that I created and ran my first year in journalism and continued to develop as the Director of Community Engagement. This page consists of arts by Foothill students and gives them an online platform to showcase their talents. We are working to extended this page to include everything from music, to artwork, to poetry, and even videography and photography. 

Instagram

Another way I have shown initiative is by creating the Dragon Press Instagram.  This year in social media I focused on engaging our audience though visual media and Instagram was a key component of covering the everyday events through a simple photo and caption. For example events that aren't cover by a full story such as Renaissance Fridays or a Senior Coffee bar would be summarized by a quick picture and sentence summary about the event.

Resourcefulness

I have displayed resourcefulness through utilizing all helpful social networking tools. This was key to success as the Director of Community Engagement. I found every soical networking tool that student were connected to and used it to engage readers. We created all different types of accounts attracting many kinds of readers. For example, this year on the Dragon Press I created a Pinterest account that linked to our fashion articles. This component was key to connecting readers to these articles because they could actually find and buy the items the writer suggested. Pinterest also allowed this newer section to grow readership because people can follow your boards on Pinterest. Furthermore, as the pins are shared it connect to our site with an even broader audience.
