Being in the Journalism and Media Studies program at Trinity has taught me to step outside of my comfort zone. It has shaped me into a stronger and more confident woman. With the guidance of my professors, I’ve improved my skills in writing, graphic design photography and journalism. I have been inspired to combine these skills with my passion for fashion and makeup artistry which resulted in creating my own digital and print magazine.
