My Introduction So Far:
1. The act or process of growing or causing something to grow or become larger or more advanced
I am constantly working to develop different aspects of my life. I want to grow on a personal and professional level. I want to advance my knowledge of policy and fundraising. I want to create a space where all of this development is displayed.
2. The act or process of creating something over a period of time
This e-portfolio will show you how I have been advancing my policy skills through an exploration of my studies at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. Professionally, I have grown and continue to grow through internship experiences. Personally, I throw myself outside of my comfort zone and accomplish my goals, a process that is documented through blogging. My work with MUSIC Matters as one of the fundraising and development chairs appears in this e-portfolio as well.
3. The state of being created or made more advanced
Over time, I have undergone the process of creating myself as a writer, and this e-portfolio provides the evidence of my development: writing samples that were created over time to advance me toward my best self.
What Will Be On the Site:
On this site I want to feature work from my public policy degree, work from the writing minor, stories from my internship, my personal writing, and some of the writing I have done with a club here at the University.
I created a journal for my public health writing that I’m pretty proud of. It took a lot of time and I ended up not being able to embed it into my e-portfolio but I do think it is something that differentiates my portfolio. I also worked really hard on the header and I feel like it reflects me, my writing, and my goals for the e-portfolio.
Adding in all of the artifacts can be a difficult process sometimes. Also, if you have read any of my blogs, you know about my love-hate relationship with WordPress. Sometimes the ideas in my head just aren’t achievable with this platform. Lastly, I am sometimes finding it horrifying to read over my writing from freshman and (eep!) sophomore year… I can definitely tell that I have grown as a writer!
