NMT - My MCBS Storyboard


Published on

While taking a New Media Tools course, I explored how businesses are leveraging visual content to tell their stories and connect with audiences. In this activity, I curated, organized and shared a collection of images visually communicating my MCBS journey. View my portfolio star submissions on my blog: www.msmartines.tumblr.com

NMT - My MCBS Storyboard

  1. 1. my MCBS story NEW MEDIA TOOLS MCBS | | Week 2 Project Martine St. Hilaire | | STORYBOARD NOVEMBER 2013
  2. 2. Martine, can you help me figure how to work this thing-ama-bob? Sure thing, Nancy! Before I started the MCBS program, I was always known as the “go-to for gadgets” or “tech-it” girl.
  3. 3. At one point, I even worked for GATEWAY computers conducting technical support for users
  4. 4. I always thought I wanted to be a teacher, but it was my 7th grade teacher who sort of de-motivated me from becoming one. You don’t want to teach kids… Unless, you want to go crazy!
  5. 5. ummm… NOT COOL
  6. 6. Because of that, I moved on to developing an interest in psychology as I’m always fascinated by people’s behavior and what makes them do the things they do.
  7. 7. Unfortunately, the psychology route was not looking too good as I came to realize that I didn’t want to be in school for 8+ years to get a Ph.D.
  8. 8. I’m too OLD for that!
  9. 9. Therefore, I took a more familiar approach by embarking on a technology related degree while working full-time at small businesses.
  10. 10. This is where I decided to demonstrate my technical skills in media communications for projects like mass e-mailings, newsletters, press releases, articles, seminar marketing materials, announcements, social media, website maintenance, etc.
  11. 11. I’ve experienced working in different office settings ranging from an underwriting insurance company; to an aerospace cable distributing company; to now an investment advisory firm where I have been given flexibility to utilize my technical skills in communications.
  12. 12. I now realize that I am supposed to go “full-force” with EXPANDING my knowledge related to media communications
  13. 13. CREATING media and becoming a professional media communicator is my true passion
  14. 14. CREATING Is what I’m meant to do
  15. 15. I looked into many different schools that offered Communications programs which all caught my attention… AT FIRST Let’s name a few… Connecticut School of Broadcasting New England Tech Institution Central Connecticut State University University of Phoenix Johnson & Wales University
  16. 16. But when I researched the schools in more depth, they seemed to be missing the ESSENTIAL QUALITIES I was looking for in a degree program
  17. 17. Until finally, I stumbled across FULL SAIL UNIVERSITY
  18. 18. Learning of what Full Sail’s MCBS program offers had me lit up like a kid in a candy store!
  19. 19. Even though I work full-time, I felt going to school full-time wouldn’t seem like WORK
  20. 20. And so far, it really hasn’t! Full Sail ROCKS!
