I have had a keen interest in social media since 2012, and am constantly fascinated with its changes. Through personal, school, fan, and business accounts, I have expertise in various forms of social media. Such platforms include Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, TikTok, Tumblr, Twitter (X), and YouTube, and the lesser-known or now-defunct Viddy, Vine, and We Heart It; social media planning and posting platforms include Facebook Creator Studio, Later, and TweetDeck. I have accumulated over 25,000 followers across several social media platforms and have reached over 500,000 people. The metrics of my social media content--across at least 30 accounts and a 10+ year time period--have varied over the years depending on the account and platform. In 2020, I became more involved in social media planning, developing more elaborate social media posts and schedules.
Bishop O'Connell High School Athletic Department
I remotely assisted in the operation of the Bishop O'Connell High School Athletic Department's official Twitter and Instagram accounts from January 2017 until August 2020. Since May 2021, I have been the primary manager of the account as part of my role as Digital Media Associate at Bishop O'Connell.
I renovated the original Twitter account by proposing a new plan of operation to the Athletic Director, then took over the account by keeping followers informed through creating new visuals, and tweeting/retweeting news and results regarding Bishop O'Connell High School's Athletic Department.
I created the Instagram account and composed every post.
I gained more than 1,000 followers across both accounts and increased the engagement by more than 800%.
I created an Excel spreadsheet to keep records of all of the Bishop O'Connell High School students and alumni who play collegiate sports, play professional sports, play on a national team, and/or compete at another high level. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HueLU_yx3mbOtJxOEeHFwe6mbIQP9Tt-t3uNsnmm_VU/edit?usp=sharing
In 2022, I developed the student internship program. Since September 2022, I have had Bishop O'Connell students be photography and social media interns, where they assist me with content creation.
Coach Wootten's Basketball Camp
During my internship at Coach Wootten's Basketball Camp, I managed the Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and YouTube platforms from June 2017 until August 2017.
I helped gain more than 500 followers in 10 weeks, more than doubling the camp's social media presence.
I have had several social media accounts. From personal accounts to fan accounts to accounts meant to further my career, I have experience of various platforms. I have had approximately 8,000 total followers on all accounts (links to fan accounts not included below), have been featured in various articles, and have had some success with going viral.
For my IDST 120 and COMM 322 classes, I used a Twitter account for additional class discussion.
CNU Women's Soccer
I volunteered as a social media manager for CNU's varsity women's soccer team from August 2019 to early December 2019.
As the Marketing Specialist for Pranakriya, I managed the official Instagram and Facebook pages from September 2020 to early December 2020.
Bishop O'Connell High School
I manage most social media for Bishop O'Connell High School, developing content in collaboration with our Communications Director. I have been assisting with social media since October 2020. Since May 2021, I have again been managing the DJO Athletics Instagram account and since October 2021, again managing the DJO Athletics Twitter account.
Dreams For Kids DC
I created all social media graphics and developed the captions for Dreams For Kids DC, and often for Dreams For Kids LA, from December 2020 to August 2021. Name changed to So Kids Soar in November 2022.
