My emoji represents my love for laughter. I love laughing and making people laugh with my witty remarks.
Why I do this work: Being in communications was a no brainer for me, considering that I’ve always been a chatty person. But it wasn’t until I was a part of frank as a Student Stage Manager and taking a Public-Interest Communications class that my passion for helping others truly came out. From both experiences, I realized the needs of the other side of communities that we don’t often think or know much about.
