There must have been a mix up.
Yes, that’s me. They call me It-Inease, I-tnashi, oh and even I-do-nease, but my name is I-ti-nease. I was born and raised in Ann Arbor. I graduated from Huron High school. I was voted most shy in my senior year book (that vote would have been over thrown if they knew me now). If you haven’t noticed I like to get out of my comfort zone. You would think that because I went to all Ann Arbor schools I would go to U of M, but I was born a Spartan. I’m interested in a career where I have to interact with people all the time, but I was voted most shy in high school. I’ve always done the opposite of what’s expected of me. So watch out!
What Motivates Me
How it all started
During my initial enrollment at Michigan State University my major was psychology. Before classes began I changed my major to Journalism. I didn’t think I could handle the pressures of a Psychologist. Trying to fix lives in this society would have been a burden, I tend to hold on to other people’s problems. I don’t think my future husband would like that. So I decided to switch over to broadcast journalism, because I figured I could help people on a broader scale if I were to get my own television show or be a part of one that informs the community.
When I got to MSU I was very confused. I tried out for the dance team, which was an epic fail. From then on I decided would join organizations that would help me reach my career goals. So I became a part of The Impact. The Impact is MSU’s student run radio station, I was a Disc Jockey for about 2 years up until this summer.
I also became a volunteer for Focal Point, where I stayed behind the scenes and worked the camera. I felt so legit until I put my head phones on and heard all the terms I couldn’t comprehend (just oblivious). After helping out for a while I got the hang of things and learned a lot of the different cues in production.
I’ve just completed my third week at HOMTV as a reporting intern and I’ve already learned so much. From learning to write a script, to editing with final cut pro. Also learned to never record children at a park and be seen getting out of a van. That’s obviously creepy. All jokes aside I am very happy to have the opportunity to get hands on reporting experience that I probably wouldn’t get elsewhere. I hope you guys are ready because I am.
