Gillian: An Introduction

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a stellar Valentine's Day!

Before I begin blogging regularly, I just wanted to give you a little background! My name is Gillian Wilson and I am a freshman studying Journalism and International Studies. I don't exactly know what I plan to do with those degrees quite yet, but I'd love to work internationally. I am a self-proclaimed news junkie and chocolate addict. I also love Adele and blast her songs on my laptop frequently. I love anything and everything international as my family is from Scotland and I've been privileged to travel all over the world.

At IU I am involved in Teter Quad Student Government's Board of Programmers. My job is to plan events for Teter's residents with nine other students. It definitely challenges my creativity. I will also begin training for the IDS very soon.

I plan to talk about a lot of different subjects in my blog. My college career may have started recently, but I've had plenty of experiences to share with you. You'll just have to stay tuned! Expect another blog at the end of the week!

All the best,

Hello all!

My name is Gillian Wilson and I plan to graduate in May 2015! I'm double majoring in International Studies, with concentrations in Western Europe and International Communication and Journalism, with a specialization in Global Journalism. 

I'm currently secretary of IU's Online News Association and was a Welcome Week assistant for both my sophomore and junior years. I also served on Teter Quad's Board of Programmers as a freshman. I'm very focused on my studies, but I enjoy venturing out to 4th Street restaurants and shopping on Kirkwood! 

Join me as I share my university exprience with you! I'll be studying abroad in Canterbury, England, during the spring semester, so make sure you come back to read about my adventures abroad!
