“I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.”-William Ernest Henley
Hi, my name is Victoria Lore and I am a Salutatorian Master’s graduate of New Media Journalism at Full Sail University . This is the first degree of its kind in the country and I am excited to be apart of it.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism & Mass Communication in 2015, I began pursing a career in Broadcast Journalism. After gaining experience in several internships at TV and Radio stations based out of my university, St. Bonaventure University’s SBU-TV Channel 9 and WSBU 88.3 The Buzz, and interned for local Top 100 hits station WMXO Mix 101.5 in Western New York. I have also interned for Long Island, New York-based Public Relations firm D. Pagan Communications, Inc.
As a freelance journalist, I have conducted research, interviews, as well as done field reporting while operating with camera and microphone equipment along with utilizing the most advanced video, photo, and audio editing software in order to create and publish news stories for my audience on my blog, victoriaanneloreblog.wordpress.com.
As a journalist, broadcaster, and young professional, I realized how strong my passion was to contribute my professional experiences in the field by continuing to learn about new ways of broadcast reporting in the digital age.
I chose to complete my M.A. in New Media Journalism because I feel as the world advances in the digital age of online social media, it is important to constantly be in the know of the latest trends, as well as to understand how social media is powerful tool to share news content. I hope through social media and other online platforms that the public will always be accurately informed about the events occurring that are shaping the world around us.
Not only am I a journalist, but also a curious individual looking to find the answers to questions about the events that shape us a nation and who we are. I have interests in politics and current events, always reading newspapers and social media outlets to keep myself up-to-date and informed. I as well have other hobbies; since it is important to have “me” time consisting of cooking, drawing, makeup, and fitness as well as spending my spare time with my family, boyfriend, and fur babies Lexi, my english bulldog, and Ava and Rocco, my pugs.
