Meet the Associate: Jessica Trinidad

11870775_10207055374846509_3188002861745336326_nHi everyone! My name is Jessica Trinidad and this is my first semester working as a CUPID Associate. I’m currently in my fourth year at Elon and will be graduating this upcoming May with a degree in English Professional Writing & Rhetoric.  Over the summer, I worked for multiple online publications, including CollegeFashionista, Twenty Something Living, and Spoiled NYC, where I wrote content ranging from fitness events and healthful eating practices to fashion trends and photography. Writing and editing at each of these publications allowed me to experiment with different rhetorical contexts; each publication had its own field and style guide that I had to adhere to. While this was occasionally tricking to navigate when shifting between writing styles, I considered it practice for the future, when I’m sure there will be instances in which switching tones between projects is necessary.

In my time as a Professional Writing & Rhetoric major, I have taken an interest in visual design, especially magazine design. In my future, I hope to explore this further, potentially engaging in research or finding a career that engages with this subject. Travel, lifestyle, and fashion writing are also subject I am incredibly passionate about, and are ones that I hope to continue to pursue in the future.
This semester, I will be working in the CUPID lab in Alamance on Mondays from 4pm-6pm. Feel free to come in if you have any questions!
