Justina Tran she/her
“I am currently a junior at Arcadia University pursuing a degree in Media and Communication. When I am not studying or working on videos, you can find me giving tours on campus to prospective students and browsing social media whenever I get the chance. I am passionate about creating and producing media, whether it be editing videos, or writing captions for social media posts. I am hard-working and will dedicate all of my energy to any project that comes my way. I am adaptable and work best when I am surrounded by others. I aspire to work for Television and Film companies as I have experience in broadcasting, sound and light design, and production. Also working for Human Relations, where I continuously get to interact with other individuals, would be a fantastic career choice for me as I have a multitude of experience in that field as well.”
