Hi, my name is Irene Hernandez. I am a student at California State University, Los Angeles. I am majoring in Psychology and I’m involved in volunteer work in my free time.
I joined Global Girl Media to learn more about media literacy and production to make media that is positive and represents our true humanity. I am an intern for Media Done Responsibly (MDR), a nonprofit organization that shares similar goals as Global Girl Media, such as training high school students to become critical thinkers of media.
I was recommended to attend this program because we are interested in knowing more about what Global Girl Media does for our youth and use this knowledge to keep making a difference and helping young people to be critical thinkers, consumers, and creators of media. For fun, I love to go to the movies and listen to music. I am a big movie fanatic, so I collect movie swag that I get every time I go to movie premieres, when I win online contests, raffles, or I buy them myself. Also, I like learning new things, I recently started to learn to play the piano, and I love to go to the beach during the summer and visit new and exciting places in LA.
I will be blogging about current global events that affect all of us. I look forward to reading your comments/opinions. Thank you. irenehdezblog.wordpress.com/
