My name is Gladis, and I am a communication student at Wichita State University with an emphasis in journalism and electronic media. This is my second year, so I am just now diving into my major classes. I’m excited to learn new skillsets like using Adobe software and analyzing the importance of visual communication. Design is one skill I’m hesitant to learn in this class since I’ve always thought I was more analytical than creative, but hopefully I can discover new talents.
I was born in El Salvador but raised in America. My family immigrated here when I was less than a year old, so all I’ve ever known was the wheat state of Kansas.
Throughout high school I involved myself in the Newspaper, Yearbook, and Studio Broadcast programs, unknowingly growing a passion for communications. Eventually, I found myself at Wichita State for its journalism program and great internship opportunities.
Right now, I am at an in-between state where I want to apply to an internship, but I also want to develop my skills more before I dive into any commitments. Hopefully, this class will teach me useful analytical and creative skills through photography, typography, and Adobe programs.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with the St. Paul University Parish community and spending quality time with my friends. Whenever, I am not binge-watching Once Upon A Time on Netflix, I am usually playing card/board games with my boyfriend, Alex. It’s a simple way to destress. I, currently, only have three games on my bookshelf, but I’m working my way up!
