For this course we were instructed to name our websites something that could be easily linked to us and wouldn’t be confused with another student’s blog.
I chose to name my site “/meow” because that’s the word that I always have to use to clarify my name, and have come to identify with myself. In a loud room, ordering coffee, almost anywhere, the conversation is the same. “What’s your name?” “It’s Kat.” “Kate? Kay?” “No, it’s Kat, like meow?”
Works every time!
I’m from Woodstock, VA, a small town just north of JMU. I’m a junior at Virginia Tech studying Apparel Product Development and Merchandising Management, and pursuing a minor in Professional Writing.
At Tech I’m involved in a few clubs and groups, which occupy a lot of my time. I am on the executive board of the Fashion Merchandising and Design Society, and our annual spring fashion show is coming up quickly (set your calendar for April 30 at 8:00pm if you’d like to attend!). I am also an Ambassador for the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, and a member of the academic society Gamma Beta Phi.
I’ve never taken a course that focused on digital media, and am excited to learn how to create and customize my own WordPress blog. I hope that the skills I learn in this course can translate directly into a career in the fashion industry.
