To start things off allow me to introduce myself, my name is Jamal Howard. I am one of the Orientation Leaders here at University of Washington Bothell. I look forward to getting to meet and know all of you, but first let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I am from Tacoma, Washington and am one of five children in my family. I am the oldest alongside my twin brother who I would like to point out is exactly four minutes younger than I am, but if you ever meet him he will say otherwise. Another thing about myself is that I enjoy going to the gym, and adventures and indulge in video games in my free time. As far as music goes I am pretty open to all kinds of music but I would have to say that one musician stands out the most to me, which is Kanye West. I just absolutely love his work and also I am inspired by him. So it is safe to say I have a bit of a Kanye obsession at times but I tend to keep it under control but be aware that if we discuss music he will inevitably come into the conversation.
Currently at the University of Washington Bothell I am in the major of Media and Communications and minoring in Business Administration. The most important aspect of Media and Communication that interest me is that it focuses on how people use messages. To generate meanings within and across various contexts, cultures, channels, and media. This field promotes the effective and ethical practice of human communication”.
