Jordan Smith

About Me

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Jordan Smith, I was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado, but I have been living in Laramie, Wyoming for the past four years. I am a senior at the University of Wyoming and will be graduating in December of 2019 with a degree in communication and a minor in marketing-communication. After sharing that information, most people ask their follow-up question, ‘what do you do with that?’, to which my answer recently has been ‘I am open to suggestions.’

While I am graduating in a few months, I do not have a specific idea of what I am going to do. I am actively looking for jobs and taking classes this semester that will hopefully lead to deciding which road to take. This blog is a requirement, however, I am excited to learn more about the blogging process, as it is something that has always interested me. Along with learning the process, this blog is going to help me further my knowledge of different forms of media, and promote my work through reflection.

I work as a marketing intern for the University, as well as another job in Laramie. While I do not often find myself with a ton of free time, I get days here and there where I get to do my own thing. On such days, I am often reading or spending time with my family. My family loves to travel in our free time. On this page I have posted pictures from several of the places we have visited. The images featured on this page were taken all over the world. There are some from Greece, Italy, New York, North Carolina, and Laramie.
