Welcome to my little corner of the world! My name is Amy Fanghella, and I am a senior at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I am a Business Administration and Marketing Major, and I plan to graduate in Spring of 2017.
Having the incredible opportunity to spend four years learning about the world, others, and myself in one of our country’s most historically rich towns has been nothing short of magical … It is just one of the many chapters that make up my unique story that’s constantly being encapsulated here on this site.
A bit of a roadmap: you can find various aspects of both my past and present coursework under the “Education” tab. Some of my favorite courses so far included developing a travel website catered specifically to college students for Principles of Marketing, creating a virtual world in Digital Storytelling, and looking at the historic film industry in my first college honors course. I spend my free time on campus as a Student Tutor at the Digital Knowledge Center, which requires me to constantly hone and develop my digital skills in order to empower students to become competent and mindful users of technology. When I’m not at work or class, I volunteer my time, passion, and creativity developing, filming and editing videos for UMW’s Catholic Student Center, and fervently raise pediatric cancer awareness on campus and in the local community in conjunction with the national apparel brand Love Your Melon.
So happy exploring, and thank you for becoming part of my journey through life! I look forward to meeting you one day along the road.
