I am grateful for the opportunity to be considered for a second term on the board of PPLAGLA and look forward to being able to contribute to the fellowship of my profession in the highly volatile and uncharted media landscape of today.
My work has been recognized through numerous other awards, including:
2016 Journalism Association of Community Colleges, Second Place Sports Action Photo2014 Journalism Association of Community Colleges, First Place Photo Essay2014 Journalism Association of Community Colleges, First Place Sports Action Photo2013 California College Media Awards, First Place Best Sports Photograph2013 California College Media Awards, First Place Photo Series
I believe that PPAGLA is an important organization for students who plan to become photojournalists, which is why if given the opportunity to serve on the Board, I would like to invest time into building stronger relationships with student members to help them make the most of PPAGLA as an important resource. In addition, I would like to help outreach to colleges to increase recruitment of new members. I am a strong advocate for education and student support, which is why I would help develop more workshops and educational opportunities to attract students.
I am very grateful for the opportunities that PPAGLA has provided me and I am excited to run for a position on the Board where I can work to offer the same to new student members.Thank you for your consideration.
