Hi! I'm Hannah.
I'm a Master's student at the University of Texas at Austin pursuing a dual degree in English (MA) and Information Studies (MSIS). My research interests focus on innovative ways that young women and teenagers create and shape language online. I also design accessible, meaningful print and web content for creative individuals and organizations.
I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2016 with degrees in English and English Education. While I was there, I co-founded a student activist organization and online publication, studied New Media and created for TEDxUGA, and worked with student-run theatre organizations.
From August 2016 to May 2017, I taught high school Theatre and English Language Arts (American Literature), working with students as they made sense of the media and performance landscapes around them. Today, I work with Campus and Community Engagement at Texas Performing Arts, welcoming area students to our performances with dynamic classroom lesson materials. I'm also a Teaching Assistant in the English Department at UT, and I love working with students as they engage with discourse around language in the media.
All this to say: I'm interested in stories and how we tell them best.
Interested? Check out a little more information about my experience and interests. I'm always up for a chat about communities with big ideas (bonus points for West Wing references, of course).
Let's make something together!
