About Me – Sophia Trueblood

My name is Sophia Trueblood and I’m from Washington, D.C. When I was 12 years old, my parents joined the Foreign Service and my family moved to the Democratic Republic of Congo in central Africa. I lived there for two years and the experience had a profound impact on me. I learned how to speak French, and am now pursuing a French major at Dickinson out of my love for the language.

After Congo, my family moved to Kazakhstan for three years. In Kazakhstan, I became the website editor and social media manager of an online student-led school newspaper. I was seriously unqualified for the job, but I learned a lot about creating, designing and maintaining a website — especially after our school kicked us out for writing an article that criticized Russian president Vladimir Putin and I had to recreate our website under a new name in less than two days! I also learned how to use social media to spread content, which fundamentally changed how I view the role of social media in our lives. I’m really interested in how communication changes across different social media, and the implications of sending a message through one social medium versus another.

I spent my last year of high school in Vietnam, which is where my family still lives. I’ve really enjoyed living overseas and I hope to eventually work in a field that will allow me to work abroad.

Below is an unrelated picture I found on the drive.

About Me – David

When I was younger, I played Mario Kart with my brothers, Dylan and Daniel. Picture this: a cold basement, three gaming chairs, a 32-inch CRT television (remember those days?), and a coffee table with a liter of Mountain Dew and a bag of Doritos. To be honest with you, I learned two things that dreary, fall day:

1.) I will always come up with some excuse as to why I lost a game of Mario Kart

2.) I love video games and all things media-related

Flash Forward years later, and my passion and appreciation for video games – and media in general – has only proliferated. I am grateful to be working as a Media Center Assistant at Dickinson College. Currently a junior, I am an English major with a minor in Film Studies and Music – which encompasses all of my passions.

When I’m not working in the Media Center, you can most likely find me doing work in the Biblio or attempting to sing Phantom of the Opera in the halls of Weiss. If you ever need help with anything media-related, please let me know! You can reach me at blosserd@dickinson.edu.

Game on, my friends!
