JOSH 101: Intro to Myself
Hello blogging community!
My name is Josh Shaffer and I am a junior Communication Studies major at Loyola University Chicago. I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska and decided to make the move to Chicago in 2016. To break the traditional format, I thought I would tackle this post in a Q&A format!
Q: Who Inspires You?
A: Teachers! I have had amazing teachers throughout my educational experience. Through them I have developed a love for writing, public speaking, and the humanities. I would be completely different without them.
Q: Why the Communications Industry?
A: Communicating is what I do naturally! I have a knack for public speaking, journalism, digital media, and I have a creative side that comes naturally. I am in Chicago's only student-run Communications agency, where I've had the opportunity to work alongside startups to create a brand. (I got to meet an Olympic athlete who has a TedTalk!)
Q: What Are Your Hobbies?
A: Singing, woodworking, hiking, concert and theater-going.
Q: What Are You Watching on Netflix?
A: BoJack Horseman, Portlandia, and Parks and Rec. I love comedy and I have watched John Mulaney's comedy specials at least 10 times.
