Bio

Hi, I'm Becky.

I am a Marketing Coordinator for ARA, A Newmark Company, where I design and disseminate marketing materials for apartments on the market. I graduated in 2016 from the UNC School of Media and Journalism with specialization in public relations and a second major in political science. I grew up in Chapel Hill and have always been fascinated by the ever-evolving field of media and journalism. I'm particularly passionate about the visual aspect of storytelling and am constantly working to learn new methods of engaging audiences through graphics.

Accomplishments

One of my greatest accomplishments was leading UNC-Chapel Hill's 140-member community service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, in the fall of 2015. As the president, I oversaw the planning and execution of more than 100 service projects, 50 social events and three fundraisers that raised more than $6,000 for local charities. I was also recognized by 89 percent of active membership as having good or very good communication.

I am also very proud of the magazine for which I served as Art Director. See more here.

Hobbies & Travels

When I'm not expanding my portfolio or blogging about local restaurant vis comm., I enjoy watching Game of Thrones (or dressing up as Cersei) and stalking Reddit (r/dataisbeautiful anyone?). I also love running outdoors and recently finished (albeit at glacier speeds) my first half marathon in April 2017.

I studied abroad in the summer of 2015 and visited international organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Austria. Aside from researching
intervention in Bosnian media, I loved experiencing the culture and gorging on ćevapi.
