MORGAN KOLSON

Media Arts and Design Student
I already have over 252 Months of Experience!

Okay, I’m twenty-one—but that means I'm part of a generation that's more digitally-connected than any other. What have I done with it? Yes, I can text really fast, but in a few weeks, I'll also have a B.A. in Media Arts and Design from James Madison University with a concentration in Corporate Advertising and a minor in Communication. I even started my own business while in school and interned for a summer with my parent’s design agency. Yes—I grew up in this business, so I understand that, ultimately, what I do has to make a positive difference for the client, my employer and, if things go just right, maybe even the world. I would welcome an opportunity to talk with you about where I might fit within your organization and hope that you will Drop Me an Email!

  • Kelly Roach International
    December 2016 - Present
    Social Media Intern

    As the Social Media Intern at Kelly Roach International, I am responsible for running, growing and developing the Instagram page for Kelly Roach. When joining their team they expressed their confusion with Instagram and said it was the platform they least knew how to grow and use. I was so excited to hear this is the platform I would be working on. I was able to participate in many professional Instagram training and learn about effective ways to gain an authentic following, make great content, and more importantly about the logarithm of Instagram.
  • MK Vintage
    July 2017 - Present
    Owner/Designer/Creator

    I started MK Vintage in 2017 hoping to make a few dollars while at home for the summer. I promoted my clothing products on Instagram, quickly gained a following, and have earned considerably more than the pocket money I had originally anticipated!
  • Sigma Sigma Sigma National Sorority
    January 2016 - Present
    Director of Philanthropy, Jan 2017 - Present

    My job as Philanthropy chair entails a lot. My role is to communicate to the chapter how the events work, what their part is in the event, what the event is for and more. I then have to execute the philanthropy event and raise money for the cause. My chapter has five Philanthropies and five events each year! I believe this job has more than anything taught me my passions. I have realized my love for giving back and i plan to do this for the rest of my life. Other than that i believe that this job taught me how to speak publicly, confidentially, how to raise money efficiently, how to plan events in a timely manor and how to deal with adults at a young age in a mature and respectful way.

    Social Media Coordinator, Jan 2016 - Jan 2017

    I was in charge of all social media platforms for my sorority; this inlcuded Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Youtube and more. I believe this helped me master the art of promotion. This position also allowed me to use my creativity for my organization. I was able to design banners, and photos for different events to use around our platforms. It taught me the art of word of mouth!
  • DatAchieve Digital
    May 2016 - January 2017
