About

Photo for WordPressThank you for visiting my website! My name is Kiran Dandia, and I am a senior at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I have always pictured myself as a journalist or an author. Now I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English, with a concentration in professional writing. I am always looking to improve my writing for a career in public relations or marketing.

The purpose of this website is to present the written work that satisfies the guidelines and assignments for three courses. The first course that this website satisfies is English 202: Media and Professional Writing, taught by Dr. Margena A. Christian, at UIC in the spring of 2017. In this class, I gained insight on how to write press releases, student profiles, and news articles.

The other two courses are Communications 216: Digital Journalism and Communications 240: Data Journalism, both taught by Mike Reilley, at UIC in the fall of 2018. In these classes, I learned about the production and ethics of producing news content for the digital news environment as well as the practices of analyzing and reporting data.
