Hi everyone! My name is Morgan Shumaker. I was born and raised in the small city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, also known as “Flood City.” Along with Johnstown being my home, the city also houses the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, where I attend school. At the University of Pittsburgh, I am currently a senior and am double majoring in Communication and Professional Writing.
Come the spring of 2018, I will be graduating from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. However, I cannot be more grateful for the time that I have spent at the university, for I have been able to develop a passion for public relations, advertising, and marketing. Along with discovering my passion for these three fields, the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, has also led me to develop a greater love for learning about writing, media, and human interactions.
This semester, to advance both of my majors, as well as my personal knowledge, I am taking the course Writing for Digital Media. This website will display a variety of work that I have completed for this class, such as blog posts and pictures, as well as topics that have intrigued me, wanting to learn more.
In this course, I hope to further my knowledge about writing and about how to write for a variety of digital mediums. I also hope to better understand how people use digital media to share their ideas and thoughts with others, as well as how these ideas and thoughts provoke anger, delight, sadness, humor, or excitement in other users.
For now, thank you for visiting my site. If you are interested in viewing more of the work that I have created for this course follow me on my Instagram account @morgannoelleshu
