I have so many different passions. My passions make me a scatterbrain when it comes to determining any big decisions. One second I think I want to be a music producer, the next second I want to be involved in video production, and now I’m majoring in Marketing. How does that even happen? In 2013, I came to Kutztown University of Pennsylvania thinking I would stay an Electronic Media major but along the way I picked up a Sociology minor. My Sociology minor was inspired by Professor O’Boyle’s awesome and laid-back Sociology classes, which I highly recommend taking at least one of his classes if you are a Kutztown student reading this. I loved my Electronic Media classes because they were hands on and I could use my creativity without being a true artist and tweak things until they perfect. I felt smart in those classes. I knew I had something special that no one else had because it came so natural. Other students needed to make story boards or write things out to plan their videos campaigns accordingly. I already knew what angle and shot I needed for each scene to make the media aesthetics I pictured in my head. I worked on my projects “the wrong way” but they always came out exactly the same as everyone else’s and sometimes better. My creativity and ideas have always been my one gift and I knew I had more to offer than just limiting myself to a Electronic media major, which can be a highly competitive field.
So, I switched my major to Business Marketing. By learning about the business field, I can apply my two minors and expand my career goals. My knowledge that I learned from my classes will definitely direct me towards one my many passions. My goal after college would be to get into advertisements. I would love to apply my skills in video production with television marketing. It would be amazing to make commercials for the Super Bowl. I could definitely top any Doritos commercial ever made by pairing my unique creativity with my strategic marketing and hands-on electronic media courses.
