I want to know what attitudes students have toward things like internet safety, privacy and social media use. All of those fall under digital citizenship. Do students know that their school internet accounts are monitored? That is a false safety net. They need to learn to be safe online prior to leaving school. The questions are, how do we teach that without alienating them and making them feel like we don’t trust them, and what would connect best with students? I’m thinking that I need to seek the sage advice of the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus, or consult my Magic 8 Ball, or, I suppose, I could continue to seek out trusted sources which can shed light on how best to teach digital citizenship, like […]
A few days ago I received my final classification for my Broadcast Journalism degree. After a lot of very hard work and discipline, I thankfully graduated with a 2:1.

I grew up in a small village in the South-West called Stoborough. Whilst I ended up branching out to the bigger areas such as Poole and Bournemouth, Stoborough will always have a special place in my heart because it played a massive role in the events that made me who I am today. It made me realise that, as crease as it sounds, there’s nothing stronger than people working together to make sure we’re all doing OK. Journalism presents me with the opportunity to do that every day and gives me the opportunity to do the right thing for the people who want to get their stories heard.
I learned about different audiences I will be writing to such as coworkers and vendors and clients. I learned about different types of documents I will be drafting such as emails and new hire paperwork and employee handbooks. I’ve thought a lot about my purpose for writing.

An engagement letter from a law firm is not simply for the purpose of expressing your terms to represent a client, you’re also seeking their approval and acceptance of the deal, you need the audience to sign and return the document. An employee handbook isn’t just a book of rules and procedures for employees to follow, it’s also a place to express expectations for the employees and the organization and also a place to let marginalized employees know they are protected and safe at your organization.

I love how I get to be in the comfort of my home, doing the thing that I want and actually earn from it. I may not be the highest paid employee out there but I consider this as a great blessing — a treasure, even.
And here we are, blog post #1 is nearly complete. I anticipate this blog evolving in its growth in tandem with my own professional journey into entrepreneurship. I can’t wait to see where the road takes us.
Here is a quick video of a show I did the other night in downtown ATL. The show was a nightmare but the brand still showed up and showed out. I’ll fill yall in on what happened at a later date . Just know that God kept me and it’s all a part of a days work as an Entrepreneur! In the meantime please enjoy a sneak peak of the show from the other night.
The colorful and abstract picture in the lower left corner is actually one of my illustrations of the brain that I hope to turn into a sticker or a print for my future online shop where I sell my art and products.
