Honey, he’s a multimedia editor

Honey%2C+hes+a+multimedia+editor

A boy joins his elementary school morning announcements in hopes of becoming an announcer just to know what it feels like to be on T.V. The little boy sounds a little annoying and being him I will admit, he very much was.  

 Though I grew up attempting to not be seen by everyone, as I grew up, that completely changed. Entering middle school, I became expressive, loud and was determined to have my opinion and voice heard. I joined school programs and organizations like the student council and was a part of the band. As I anticipated graduating high school, I wanted to attend college and be a music major and musician. I even thought of pursuing education as a teacher.  

Although I was in love with music and still am, there was always one thing that I loved more and that was writing. Stories about adventure, love, dystopian worlds and poems of teenage angst, I was interested in writing a little bit of everything. However,  as we grow up and become different people, so do the things we love. Our interests morph, and so did my relationship with writing

I became entranced with the news space, and I became interested with everything going on in our world. From watching the news on my screen, to watching reporters out in the world keeping us informed. I have always wanted to be on TV and be the one my family is getting their news from.   

Joining The Prospector has been something I have wanted to do since coming into college and I feel privileged to finally be a part of it. As the new multimedia editor, this is the start of not only having my voice heard but also being able to be a voice for those who feel they do not have a voice,  and be the voice for those reading this right now.   

Majoring in multimedia journalism has not only grown my love for journalistic writing, but as well as editing and producing videos. 

As the newest multimedia editor for The Prospector, I hope to create a space that establishes accountability as well as engagement for the campus. I hope that with my goals set in place for this semester, the student body can immerse themselves into the campus and our community. I also hope to show the student body what the campus has to offer and to make their UTEP experience a memorable one.   

I hope to achieve this by making this semester’s podcasts more engaging with the students and showcase what students are experiencing from the perspectives of those who may not be heard or seen. So, I  hope you listen and watch our podcast and multimedia packages. Get used to my voice, I like to have it heard and am ready to never hold back to have yours heard as well, see you soon, UTEP.
