I am Independent Event Producer of Culture and Art, Journalist and Art History student at Indiana University. My future career is to build my own business, which can combine my skills in Journalism and Art History to tell the best story which can provide audience new ways to think about visual culture.

I love working with visual culture a lot. The bicentennial internship is about analysis the landscape of IU campus, and my photo editor position is about how to inspire photographers to tell a story through photography. I’m learning how to edit and select the best photo for a story, and how to take the best story-telling photo. I enjoy the analysis and production of visual culture.
