Welcome to Newcommunicaitionsblog! My name is Melinda and I’m completely new to blogging! I’m actually really nervous and have rewritten this post about a dozen times. To tell you a bit about myself I’m 28 years old, I’ve worked in retail for the past ten years and although it took me a while figuring out what I wanted to do with my life I’m finally on my way to getting there 🙂

So now I’m in my second year at Griffith University studying a Bachelor of Public Relations and Communications and minoring in journalism. When I’m not studying I’m mum to a very tenacious and adventurous five-year-old named Flynn. Its actually interesting having direct insight into Gen z and how technology is so integrated into their everyday lives and learning. Most weekends you can find us exploring the Gold Coast. Our favourite places to frequent are the beaches and the areas around Mount Tamborine.

I have written this blog as part of my assessment, but it will have some interesting and fun posts about new communications technology. Stay tuned for more.
