Smith married her eventual killer, Cedric Anderson, in January but left him after the relationship became untenable. The hashtag also played a critical […]Read more "Twitter Is A Home For Everyone, Literally Everyone"
We all know 2016 has been a tumultuous year, from the Apoca-Election to a string of deaths from heroes and celebrities alike. The one tragedy no one predicted to divide the country (not on the color of a dress) was the 2016 Election.

Trending on twitter earlier today was the hashtag #ThingsIWontApologizeFor. To me this seemed like a very silly hashtag, and naturally I wanted to see what this conversation was all about.

Social media has enabled me to communicate with friends and family regardless of our geographic locations. I use social media as a tool to showcase my skill set to potential employers and clients. Because of this, I am motivated to constantly create content and find ways to get my name out there in a way […]Read more "Communicating through Screens"
I was very skeptical when I first joined social media. With hundreds of different outlets, not only was I overwhelmed, but I struggled to see the appeal; in my mind, they all did the same thing. But I couldn’t be more wrong. The more I learned about the proper Instagram filters and what constituted a […]Read more "Is this thing on?"
There’s something ironic about live tweeting, and snapchat stories. They’re all about living in the moment and using technology to share those moments with others- but when you really think about it, they’re about being anywhere but where you are.
