My name is Irene Mercado.
Aspiring content creator.
Social Media enthusiast.
World class sponge.
Ready to soak it all in,
and share it out loud.
The following are projects I worked on prior to the completion of my Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications from the University of Texas-Pan American.
Gender Roles in Social Media - This story compares how gender affects social media usage.
Of Boards & Bikes - This story compares students that ride bikes or skateboard on campus to get to class to those who walk.
Bench Press Newsletter Spring 2014 - The inaugural issue of the University of Texas-Pan American's Wellness and Recreation Complex. I wrote two stories: "Cutting Away the Fat: Sergio Puente's Weight Loss Story" and "Rec Resolutions 2014." I assisted in copy editing all other stories and photography.
Margin Walker Presents (f.k.a. Transmission Events) - Social Media Intern: I assisted in managing the company social media outlets. I wrote and scheduled daily copy promoting artists and covering concerts. I created Facebook events, photo albums and Spotify playlists. The following are a few photos and GIFs taken while covering various shows.
The following is a personal passion project of mine. I started this channel in hopes of developing my personal brand: Irene I ran I run. I am always looking to learn ways to develop my content and voice.
