I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out witty ways of introducing myself to the World Wide Web, but all that has really come to mind is this,

“My name is Alliyah; an oddly spelt version of the late singer’s name. I am from Australia, but have never seen kangaroos fight and I have a subscription to almost every television/movie streaming service.”

Welcome to my blog.

My major is mass comm with a concentration in journalism and I’m minoring in political science. Initially I chose to major in mass comm because I wanted to be a news reporter, but after being a “media conscious” student in the United States for all of a year, I couldn’t think of anything I’d want to do less. There are so many things I don’t understand about the media, which made me want to study it even more. It’s a really funny thought process and the irony is striking, but in my head it makes total sense.

In this course I want to learn the ins and outs of media on a digital level. We take in so much digital content on a daily basis, so I think it’s important to be aware of what it is that we are consuming.

’til next time,
