My name is Karina Robinson. I am a currently attending Grand Canyon University. LOPES UP!!! I am studying to get my Bachelors degree in Business Administration. I also have a passion for Marketing and Social media. For a long time, I had heard through different mentors and teachers that I should start a blog or a YouTube channel because I had a lot of creative ideas and things to talk about that I thought could be usefully for others. I always worried about “Who would watch my Vlogs or read my blog posts? I was encouraged by my GCU Marketing Professor, Mindy Weinstein, who encouraged me to start my own blog and personal brand. She encouraged my peers and me to start a blog because it would set us apart from other students when looking for a job, it would look good on our resumes and would help us with our writing skills. And also by my mentor, Moniek Eldridge that reminded me that “People want to hear what you have to say especially since you are currently in college. There will be parents and students wanting to know about your experiences, any hacks and tricks to help them have better knowledge about everything GCU.” And this is why I started a blog. In my blog, I’ll be talking about myself, GCU campus life, food and being a transfer. I want to share my thoughts while I am on my personal journey for my purpose in this business and digital media world. I pray that I can inspire and help others that did not have friends and family to guide me when I transferred to GCU a year ago.
I am grateful that I am no longer afraid to share my thoughts and help those that are curious about going to college or transferring to the college of their choice. I just want my readers to know that even though we are going to different colleges, we can learn from each other, encourage and inspire each other to do better for ourselves and communities. I am excited and grateful to blog about what I like and am passionate about. I can’t wait to start and hope that you all will come with me on this journey.
Let me know in the comments section, If any of you are transfer students and what was your experience like at your college? The things you liked about your campus or things you would like for your college to enhance or change so that other transfers have a better experience?
