About me

Industry Student
Occupation TA
Location Madison, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction I love to travel and explore new places, sweet kisses from my grandchildren and being adored by my dog.
Interests ACADEMIC INTERESTS: Media stereotypes, hegemony, civic engagement, nation building, race, class and gender issues, human geography, mass communications and deliberation. RESEARCH INTERESTS: Although I have wide-ranging interests as noted above, my research interests fall within the intersection between media stereotypes and minority youth. How do mediated stereotypes effect youth in terms of the perceptions of their future possible selves? Can interventions improve perceptions of future possible selves? PERSONAL INTERESTS: cooking, reading, walking, biking, traveling, movies, music...not necessarily in that order.
Favorite Movies I love the Harry Potter movies, 007, Matrix, Lethal Weapon, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and the Hobbit many many more.
Favorite Music Contemporary jazz, blues, pop, rock, classical and folk: Dave Matthews, Radio Head, Seal, Colbe Caillat, The Fray, The Beegees, Jason Mraz, , John Mayer, Vanessa Carleton, BB King, Trent Moller, Peter Mulvey, Eva Cassidy, Tom Petty, ACDC, Mozart, Debussy, Korsakov and much much more....
Favorite Books Harry Potter novels, Daniel Silva novels, Dan Brown novels... I've read them all.
