Hello! My name is Myra Jo. No, Myra Jo isn’t a double first name and yes, that really is my full name (I don’t have middle name). I was born and raised in North Carolina, so “y’all” is a permanent part of my vocabulary. From a young age, creativity has always been my strong suit, so I went into college to explore my passions and I haven’t looked back since.
I am a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill aka the University of National Champions! I majored in advertising in the School of Media and Journalism and minored in studio art. UNC is home to many MJ’s including Michael Jordan, the MJ School, and me, Myra Jo! Carolina taught me countless lessons both inside and outside of the classroom– the education I received is truly invaluable. I’ve loved my time at the “southern slice of heaven,” but now I’m ready to start life in the “real world.”
I am wholeheartedly passionate about the creative process and creating a story with compelling visual and text components. I believe in the power of social media, and I have an obsession for all things YouTube (hence the subject of my blog). I am hoping pursuing a career that will allow me to explore my love for digital media and technology. Please visit my LinkedIn for more information about my professional ambitions!
