- Home safety for the elderly
This course has allowed me to meet many interesting new people that I typically wouldn’t meet in my everyday life. I have found that the elderly are fascinating people filled with lifetimes of stories and experiences.
At first, I was nervous to find sources and interview them. I thought it would be hard to find people with interesting stories, but I soon found that I was wrong. The elderly people that I came in contact with were full of interesting experiences and were willing to tell me about these experiences. They seemed to thoroughly enjoy sharing their stories with me, which made the stories even more interesting to learn about.
I especially enjoyed my interview with Elouise Jensen. She is so full of life and excitement that it was rejuvenating to talk to her. She was incredibly helpful in giving me information and making sure I had everything I needed for my story. It was a pleasure to be able to get to know her as well as my other sources. Each source I interviewed was extremely helpful and it was fun getting to know them.
I am a senior at the University of Utah studying mass communication. Before attending the U, I went to Salt Lake Community College where I earned an associate degree in graphic design.
Some of my interests include visual arts and music. I currently work as a freelance graphic designer, which allows me to use my creativity to produce visual designs. I find it rewarding to take a concept and make it into a tangible visual design.
My favorite hobby is playing the piano. I have been playing for 17 years. I love to sit down at the piano and compose my own music. Music provides a way for me to clear my mind and relax after a busy day of school and work.
I recently got married and I love every minute of it. It’s been a great adventure so far and I look forward to the future adventures I will undertake.
