A Southern Wyomingite

ABOUT ME
Hi Everyone, my name is Chance Wright. I am a Digital Marketing Concentration MBA Graduate student at RIT graduating in May 2019. I did my Undergraduate degree which is a BFA in Advertising Photography at RIT as well.
I am originally from a small town called BigHorn, Wyoming. I lived there until high school where I left for a boarding school in New Hampshire called Holderness School. During this time I also moved to Northern Virginia. At Holderness, I found RIT and came for the photography program, and I have been here ever since. 
In conjunction to school, I am also the Vice President and Co-Founder of a Non-Profit called The Shore Foundation. I have an active photography business, specializing in landscape, architecture, and nature photography. I started my own company, ATL/WYO Productions, which is a film and television production company, which I plan to run after graduation in LA. Lastly, I am a New York State firefighter in the town of Chili, NY.

THE SHORE FOUNDATION
We are a certified 501(c)(3) Non-Profit in New York State. Our mission is to provide computers into the hands of those in need. Founded between myself and my roommates in the Spring of 2018, we have successfully given away ~20 computers to high school age students who were unable to purchase them themselves. We plan to attempt to set the Guinness World Record for most computers donated in 24 hours, with a mass donation event where we will give away somewhere around 500 computers. I encourage you to visit our website and learn more about the cause, as well as ways in which you can help. 

MY HOBBIES
In my little free time that I do get, I do have a few hobbies which I love to do. I am a recreational skydiver and speed flyer. I skydive out west of Rochester near a town called Barre, NY. Speedflying, which is similar to paragliding is practiced in mountainous areas with steep slopes and little trees.

Katherine Ray

Me!

Hello! My name is Katherine Ray and I am pursuing my master’s degree on Communications and Media Technologies at RIT. I will be graduating from the College Of Liberal Arts in May 2019.

 

About me

I came to RIT with a scholarship to study Communications and Media Technologies. I am a beauty  influencer and I have a YouTube channel and social media accounts where I share with the world everything beauty related from how to take care of your natural curly hair, to tips, tricks and reviews of makeup, skincare and hair products. This is so I can empower others to accept their roots and embrace them, and feel comfortable in their own skin, without neglecting the fact that most of us like to play around with makeup to change things up from time to time (and that’s perfectly ok).

I have learned how to create media content that goes accordingly with the main goal of my channel and social media, and I am learning the strategies of planning ahead all the content posted.

I have worked as an influencer with brands like Sugar Bear Hair and Duvolle, trying out their products and creating content for them (reviews, posts, videos, etc.). It has been very interesting to see what they want and what are their ideas for content to attract more customers.

Sugar Bear Hair Sponsorship

Even though the majority of work experiences I have had so far has been in corporate banking, it has helped me build the discipline I have today for what I am passionate about, and have helped me plan ahead and foresee the different possible scenarios.

Oluwatosin Arowosola

Digital Brand Manager

Hey guys! My name is Oluwatosin Arowosola. Too long, but you can call me Tosin (toe-sin). I have a BSc in Mass Communication from University of Lagos, Nigeria and currently a graduate student at RIT studying communications and media technology.

Let me take you on a journey about my passion…

I have a great interest in investigating brand communication, consumer engagement/behavior, digital media, and marketing/ advertisement. As an international student, I strive to look for opportunities that enable me acquire experiences in industries that are related to my field.

A philosophy I live by is

“Always know what to say, when to say it, how to say it, and most importantly to whom it should be said”.

Some Experiences

One of my most memorable experiences was an interview with Erin Foster, former director of marketing communications, Eastman Kodak. This was an opportunity for me to tap into her experience and expertise to learn about some real challenges, and how it was tackled. Watch here.

The Empty Hanger TV: An engaging multimedia project, that shows how and why clothes matter. Working on this project, helped me learn so much about the American market and also to see the difference, if any, in how digital marketing works or how it affects the target audience. I was able to see how a new business can use the new media to get a head start in the market. My research was focused on; management research tools, social platform scheduling, content type per platform and so on.

My most recent experience comes from Children Awaiting Parent (CAP). A non-profit organization, dedicated to finding adoptive families for waiting children. Every brand wants to have that online presence. My major role at CAP as a brand manager was to revamp the online presence, by creating campaigns that help to increase the brand’s identity. Some of the things I did included, but weren’t limited to, marketing campaigns, implementation plan, content creation, graphic design, website management and social media management.

The most interesting aspect of my role at CAP was the graphics design aspect. It was a challenge, but an exciting one which I am proud of myself for taking on. See, I had little to no idea on graphics design, but I basically taught myself how to use the available design software as it was a necessary tool to help me produce amazing results in my role as a brand manager.

I’m eager to continue learning and positioning myself in industries I can add value to.

Hey there, it’s Lisa Hornak

Picture of LisaMy name is Lisa Hornak and I am originally from Houston, PA. Currently, I am a third-year student at Rochester Institute of Technology. I chose to major in Marketing with a Supply Chain Management minor. Finally, I am a member of the Women’s Rugby team at RIT and the DECA club at RIT.

In the future, I  plan to work in the sports marketing or marketing analytics industry. Even though I prefer to stay in the Rochester area, which I now consider it to be home, I am always up for an adventure when a good opportunity opens up.

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
 ― Martin Luther King Jr.

If you can’t run, walk, or crawl then I guess you end up crutching like me. Right now I am on crutches for the next 6+ weeks with a cracked fibula. Being on crutches has definitely been an eye-opening experience in snowy Rochester to the accessibility challenges of going to a large university.

Crutches

As my journey through college is starting to near the end, I am currently searching for a marketing co-op for this summer. By filling out hundreds of applications and obsessively checking various job sites the past few months I learned a lot. Therefore, I am more cognizant of what jobs are out there and how my interests match up.

 

What should you do next:

Finally, take a glance at my Twitter, LinkedIn, and Resume. No need to actually read them just open the link.  I need to analyze traffic being driven to this page using Google Analytics for my marketing assignment.

Lisa Hornak Injury Update [ 3/27/18]

Four x-rays later, I am off crutches and in an air cast. Now, I will wear the “walking boot” another month followed by physical therapy. I am looking forward to when I can return to my active lifestyle and getting back into my gym routine.

Hello! I’m Hanna Hawkins!

Hanna Hawkins, 2017

About Hanna Hawkins:

Hello! Hanna Hawkins is my name and I’m currently a fourth year New Media Marketing Major at the Rochester Institute of Technology, who is double minoring in Media Arts and Technology and Advertising and Public Relations. My graduation date is December 2018! I primarily chose RIT because of the diversity in culture and people of who attend RIT.  I chose my major because of rhe great co-op program and its unique aspects.

Extracurriculars:

Throughout my R.I.T. career I’ve participated in various amounts of clubs or activities. One that stuck and became a major part of my life was  ZTA. Zeta has helped me strengthen my communication skills and expand my outlook on situations! I currently work 2 part-time jobs. I work as a banquet server at the Double Tree by Hilton while also being the student social media manager for the RIT Office of Career Services and Co-op! At the office I assist in managing various social media accounts, help increase engagement in different demographics, I aid in facilitating events and creating and planning content. Since I do work alot and am a full time student I really value being in my sorority. It has not only allowed me to grow into the person I am today but shown the person I can be, a strong, outgoing, driven individual who will be as successful as she wants to be.

Why?

Social media is something that I’ve grown up with and become very passionate about. I am planning on going into a career that includes content planner or creating but, I’m always looking to learn something new. I look forward to working in a company that’ll allow me to learn and grow with their company. When I graduate this December I hope to find a full-time position somewhere warm. I’m looking primarily at North Carolina and California. I like North Carolina because my sister, whom I am very close with, currently lives there. I’ve also heard Charlotte, North Carolina is a new and upcoming area for social media marketing and startups. California has always been a dream of mine! Calfifornia has always been known for dreams coming true, therefore there are quite a few startups in the area! I’ve always thought about the idea of working with a startup becuase it allows the employees to grow with the companies!

How To Be A Hazard. To, uh, Yourself.

I recently started living by myself. People say that when you start living by yourself, you discover new things about yourself, like a whole wave of realizations, deep intellectual reflections etc.

Nope. Apparently THAT isn’t going to be my thing.

I seem to have a talent in finding new ways to be a hazard. To literally the only person in the house – Me.

As always, I decided to jot down my list of ‘How To Be A Hazard. To Yourself.’

Disclaimer: Imitating instances mentioned in this post may induce some serious injuries. Do not try at home. Subject has already done that for you. 

  1. Leave Sharp Objects Lying Around

    People who know me, know that I’m hopelessly absent-minded. Below are pictures of an incident that actually occurred. Uh, yes, I have managed to become a lot more responsible after that. Uh no, it hasn’t repeated. *looking up at the sky*

    Please don’t tell my mom. Thanks.

    Doing some cool stuff ‘cuz joblessness

    A rare picture of subject doing work

    peek-a-boo!

    Subject MAY have sat on it. That’s confidential information.
  2. Play ‘Live-Life-Dangerously’ Kind-of Games

    Okay I really love this one game I invented.
    *looks at mom’s death stare*
    Okay, um, this game is not cool. I repeat. Not cool at all.
    *sheepish grin*
    So what you have to do is try to cut vegetables with your weaker hand. You keep trying to decrease your cutting time as the days go by.
    Not that I have tried doing this multiple times, of course.
    Following are pictures of a random subject attempting to play the game.
    (mom, I swear, that isn’t me!)

    Subject is excited to cut with her left hand!

    I doubt subject focused this much in her engineering.

    Subject may be rethinking life decisions.

    Well, I hope you guys liked my post!
