Hi! Before I start my regular blog, I figured I should write an introduction blog post about me, why I love writing and experience in writing over the years.
My name is Miranda. I am currently attending Northern Arizona University where I study Journalism/Political Science and Hotel and Restaurant Management. I will be graduating with my B.S. this year and looking forward to moving to more exciting things and opportunities in my post-graduate life.
I have been writing for as long as I can remember. However, my interest in the activity really blossomed in high school, when I discovered journalism. I was a part of my high school newspaper for three years and was also the co-Editor-and-Chief my senior year of high school. During high school, I also had an short essay, The Girl Who Tempts, published in an anthology, Celebrating What is Important to Me, and won a poetry contest. In 2007-2008 I was named Arizona State Best High School Journalist of the year by the Arizona Interscholastic Press Association.
Since, high school I have had numerous freelance articles published. I was also a report for my university’s newspaper, The Lumberjack. I have been fortunate enough to have numerous Public Relations internships. Additionally, I have been a writing intern for Alltrips.com. During this internship I wrote ten travel based blogs and copy for landing pages in the Flagstaff section of the website. Most recently, I was an Editorial Intern at Green Living AZ Magazine. During this internship I wrote three articles, which were published in the magazine, and assisted with gathering product samples and writing copy for monthly product features in the magazine.
Overall, I love writing. While my background is in non-fiction writing and journalism, I am beginning to find a passion and energy for creative writing. I am looking forward to blogging on this site and developing innovative topics based on my experiences.
