STUDENT STORY

Katrina Alblas
Media and Communications student ‘18

" I am entering my fourth year at Redeemer as a Media and Communications student and honestly, I have never been more excited to learn and attend a class as I did when I made the decision pursue a bachelors degree in Media and Communications. I like to say that my passion lies in story telling and Redeemer has taught me how to tell the story of an individual in a way that not only does justice to their story but also shares it from the right perspective. My classes have challenged the way I think about the world as well as the way that I see, respond and interact with individual and issues within our world. My long term goals involve creating documentaries. I would love to create videos of individuals and organizations across the globe and share their stories. My professor said in a class once that we can have the power to give a voice to the voiceless through videography and I think that that is exactly what I want to accomplish with my degree. Through my classes I have first learned how to find the truth in a story, and from there I can apply the practical skills that I have learned from operating a camera to editing to writing. Redeemer has helped me to get my foot in the door in the world of media and communication, through Cross Roads Media in Burlington as well as by offering give references and guidance as I pursue my own goals.
