I am really excited to write this blog post because it answers the question that I first proposed when i started this blog when I first came into this class in the beginning of the semester. I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate as a social media intern for the YBCA Summit … More YBCA Summit 100 – My Experience
For my final blog post I wanted to talk about my experience Interning at YBCA this semester. I was chosen to help out on the social media team for YBCA’s 100 Summit this year. My job was to take over the Instagram story and create a work of art! (I’m a Snapchat master so that … More Summit Recap!
So I was lucky enough to score two free tickets to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and I wanted to post about my experience! (you guys should go check it out!) I went to go see Tom Sach’s exhibit and was absolutely blown away! The exhibit I got to experience was “Tom Sachs and … More Tom Sachs at YBCA!
I am really excited for this week’s topic because I have spent all semester researching and preparing for this week’s presentation! The topic this week is “Human Rights”.

After several blog posts, I have found it more interesting to explore topics that dive deeper into these social movements rather than just reporting on them and giving my opinion.
