It’s Great to Be a Telecom Gator

When I came to the University of Florida I was very hesitant, but when I started taking classes at the College of Journalism and Communications (CJC) I found my niche. There was nothing better than taking classes with professors and peers that inspire you and motivate you to do better. During this semester I have…

The Tipping Point

One of the things that stood out to me from the reading of the Tipping Point is the rule of few. The fact that 80% of any work is usually done by a 20% of participants. THIS IS SO TRUE! Just look at your group projects, most are done by two people and at the…

Grad Adventurer, New Mom and Future Movie Director

The University of Florida is such a wonderful melting pot. I find it fascinating to find people with different perspectives/points on life. For example: Taryn Renz just moved to Fayetteville and she is taking adventures to trails and different restaurants; Christopher Platt, loves to write about movies since he is an aspiring movie director; Shazquia…

Bio

I was born in Bogot√°, Colombia to awesome, driven and courageous parents. Despite loving Colombia, the culture and of course it’s food, I moved to Hollywood, Florida six years ago. It was a huge change since I was supposed to accustom to a new culture. Fortunately, I was able to make friends and learn the…

Resume

Despite hating to write resumes, I came up with something with the help of the career resource center. I am proud of all the experiences I’ve had as a Gator and the opportunities I will¬† have after you take a look of this awesome resume.

Running Water

I have a GalaxyS5, for all of the iPhone users, that is the equivalent of a generation 5 iPhone. Samsung just came out with the Galaxy7 and I want it so badly. But I am a broke college student that cannot afford it. The fact that I can’t have it makes me feel inadequate but…

Miami vs FSU

I am a gator fan at heart, blue and orange runs through my veins and there is nothing I hate more than other Florida teams. But tonight, I don’t know what to say. I don’t know much about football, but from my perspective both teams performed. My rivalry wanted both of them to lose but…

“Don’t Make Me Think” Review

When I was assigned to read this book, I never thought it would be about web design. I did not think too much of it and I decided to rent it from the library. As I started reading I understood why it was assigned. As young reporters and journalists we want our content to be…

Reflection

Calendars, journals, reminders, events. Their eyes open wide, the sugar and the creme hits them in the right spot and they keep going, restless, exhausted, and in cycles. One day after the other just like the one before. In contrast, she loves tea and the roses at the side of the road. It does not…

Outsiders

She sits outside, right before class watching people eat lunch. Maybe she is hungry or maybe she is hungry for some affection. The world passes by fast but she enjoys solitude and peacefulness. She stays quietly as she wonders if she would ever want that; what everyone seems to have. She goes back to reading…

Beat Lover, Lyrics Hater.

My heart is in a tug of war with hip hop; there is something about feeling the beat drop that just makes every cell on my body dance. Its inevitable. I love being able to dab and pop it and lock it. Yet, when I actually start paying attention to the lyrics my brain cells…
