Myself and a short digital autobiography

January 23rd, 2014

Hello there, OnMason!

I am Jess Sturges, a freshman at George Mason University! I’m currently a sociology major, and a hopeful double minor in Non-Profit studies, and Women/Gender Studies with an LGBTQ Studies concentration. I was raised in Georgia, but I moved to Virginia so that I could follow my human rights activism dreams in DC. I am currently an intern with the Human Rights Campaign, and loving every minute of it. I am involved in GMU Hillel, Habitat for Humanity, Pride Alliance, and I enjoy just hanging out with my friends.

My digital autobiography is pretty short, but I do use technology a lot. I am active on Tumblr, because I use it as a way to put my writing/poetry out into the world. It helps me connect to other people who share common issues, ideas, thoughts, and lifestyles. It’s a great place to have debates, share images, text, and audio files. I use the typical social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, texting, etc. I use each of these tools to stay connected to other people, and friends who I do not speak to on a day to day basis. I also use the internet itself a great deal for my job, which involves a lot of searching for information and compiling resources. I use tools such as Wufoo and Excel to create spreadsheets and forms. I use Expression Engine to edit the HRC’s website.

The HRC

The HRC has already expanded my use of various types of technological tools in it’s attempt to touch people, and provide them with resources. As my work with the foundation increases, I will continue to learn new programs and tools.
