Summary

My name is Olivia Danson and I'm a freshman at American University. Although originally from Arlington, VA, I was raised most of my life in Florida. My degree is focusing on Broadcast Journalism, a field I am very passionate about. Working for Tech tAUk has helped me learn the basics of Broadcast Journalism, including camera operation, film editing, on-air broadcasting, stage set-up, and teleprompter operation. I enjoy writing novels and short stories in my spare time. I aspire to be a novelist and broadcaster. My interests also include technology, gaming, and language study. I'm currently in the process of learning Japanese and continuing my French speaking skills.
