#WhyMoody: Only four more weeks until the first day of class! Today we are highlighting Graciana Blackman from Blooming Grove, TX. According to Wikipedia, the population of Blooming Grove is 821. She will be stepping foot on the 40 acres as an SLHS student this fall. "I want to learn how to help others communicate and advocate for their wants and needs. I want to make a difference in a person’s daily needs. My brain loves the sciences, and I believe that by pursuing this degree, I will get to use this skillset to help others communicate effectively and efficiently." Blackman believes it's important for everyone to have the chance to be heard. "I'm looking forward to branching out and meeting new people who aren’t like me and who can give me an entirely different perspective on life!"

#DearMoody: Junior Hayley Fitzsimmons will also be answering all of your questions this week. She is getting a minor in Business along with her PR degree. "Even unintentional media has a purpose and a narrative. I learned this while taking Professor Kahlor's Psychology of Advertising course my freshman year, and it is a lesson I see further developed in every single one of my Moody classes as I progress in my degree. Since then I've been able to not only develop my own intentional media skills in my professional endeavors but understand the unintentional ones around me and how they lend themselves to a greater narrative." She's also an intern at @kendrascott and will continue that internship this fall. Hayley is also going to be the Vice President of Texas Sweethearts this fall! Have a question about college, internships, just ask Hayley! ...

#WhyMoody: Let’s welcome Fiza Baqai from Austin, TX. She’ll be attending #TEXASMoody as a journalism student. She was editor-in-chief of her high school yearbook and interned at Austin-American Statesman. She was attracted to @utjschool because of the combination of traditional writing and digital storytelling. “I also believe that communication is a super important part of society because of this past year, where face-to-face communication was virtually nonexistent, and people are just starting to get back into some pre-pandemic ways. Communication allows us to bond with people outside of normal ways, such as social media. It allows people’s unique stories to be told and brought to light for many people to hear and learn something new from.” Baqai is looking forward to this fall because she wants to meet like-minded friends passionate about storytelling and finding a community at @utaustintx. We'll see you soon, Fiza! ...

#SummerXMoody: Noah Levine is currently participating in the UTLA program this summer and he has two internships! He is a development intern for the production company @blumhouse Productions and Ghost House Pictures. "As an intern, I help analyze incoming material for potential development. Both of my internships involve working in the horror genre, which is my goal in life as a filmmaker. All I want is to direct horror movies, so being able to work under two well-known companies that are responsible for some of the most famous modern horror films has been a dream (or nightmare) come true. My UTLA advisors have been extremely helpful throughout not only the summer but also the internship application process. All of their advice on resumes and interviewing has helped me to get where I am. Moody as a whole has emphasized the importance of strong connections and relationships between colleagues because you never know when a connection will come in handy. I am so grateful for the amazing opportunity to be in LA this summer." We can't wait to watch your future horror films, Noah! Hook 'em! ...

#SummerXMoody: Life is most certainly not Ruff for #TEXASMoody and CLD senior Kayley Horowitz! She explains, “This summer, I am an assistant for ZilkerBark, a dog photography company in Austin. During my sessions, I communicate with clients, help our photographers stay organized, and most importantly, give lots of treats! Seeing a client’s face light up after getting the perfect shot of their pup is the most rewarding experience. Because of this position, I have never felt more connected to the Austin community. I love hearing how ZilkerBark’s social media page has made a positive impact on this city and the people/dogs within it. ZilkerBark is an Austin classic and I am so grateful to play a part in the local culture! One of the most important aspects of my job is to create clear communication between the photographers and clients. Thanks to my classes at Moody, I have developed the correct skills that will lead me to success at ZilkerBark!” What starts here changes the world – and for pets too! Rock on, Kayley. ...
