LinkedIn profiles | Fall 2018

All students in MASC 101-001 and 101-002 were required to create a LinkedIn profile — their own personal PR (public relations). We have a lot of accomplished people in our class, including:

¶ military veterans like Brandon Baldwin (who served in the Coast Guard) and Vidal Gonzalez (who served in the Marines and whose skills range from Military Operations and Weapons & Tactics Instruction to Web Development, Graphic Design and Soccer)

¶ student athletes like Anna Koniencki (women’s lacrosse), Austin Conway (track and field), and basketball star Sean Mobley (who saved the day when the Rams beat Hofstra in overtime Saturday night).

¶ entrepreneurs like Elijah Bell (co-owner of Rerun Vintage Clothing); Anna Lillis (the marketing and event coordinator for The Broadberry Entertainment Group); and Devin Bethea (who is not only on the men’s track and field team but also a stock trader with own website,

¶ writers, artists and performers such as Samantha McInnis (who is working on a graphic novel, “Neveea,” as well as an animated cartoon); Amari Cummings (who performs with Theatre VCU and in Richmond community theater); Carlos Lopez (who writes for Urban Views Weekly and Ink magazine and co-hosts a podcast); Jovon Griffith (who won first prize at the 2018 NOVA Student Art Exhibition); Anhhuy Nguyen (who is both a software developer intern and a dancer and choreographer for Blank Canvas, a dance team at VCU); and Quentin Rice (who plays drums with the Peppas).

We have students who speak multiple languages (Sabah Munshi had the record with five, including Hindi and Arabic) and students from all over the world: Chaeyeun Ahn from Korea; Qianyun Qi and Jiayuan You from China; and Ada Romano and Elena Avendano, both originally from El Salvador.

Most members of the class work besides going to school, and many of them do volunteer work as well: Elda Abraham is an intern for Ronald McDonald House of Charities; Irina Benson is a volunteer dog handler and has interned at the Smithsonian in D.C.; Alexis Bolivar will be an intern for a state senator in the spring; Corene Cantwell did a service trip to Guatemala with Nursing Students Without Borders; Mosi Jones ran a student organization called Nonpartisan Americans for Cooperative Politics; Jennifer Kater volunteered at a summer camp teaching young girls how to canoe and kayak; Carrie Minor volunteers at The Doorways, a hospitality home for patients and families of MCV Hospital; Erica Perez Escobar is a volunteer with Project Sunshine, which helps hospitalized children; McKenzie Pickett is an intern for Virginia Victim Assistance Network; Reagan Carriker worked with underprivileged children in Cambodia for a year; Aisyah Setiawan does volunteer work with Art for the Journey, which works with children; Jacqueline Steibly does volunteer work with Health Brigade, formerly the Fan Free Clinic; and Matt Tessema mentors high school students.

Here are the LinkedIn profiles for (almost) everybody in our class.
