After 4 years at Sacred Heart University, Emily earned a bachelor’s degree in Digital Communications as well as the silver medal of excellence. Her passion for learning and communications led her to continue her education at Sacred Heart to obtain her master’s in Broadcast Journalism and Media Productions. When she is not in class, she is working full time at the Audio Visual department as a graduate assistant. In her free time, you can find her working with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra to create video content for the organization or practicing her skills in animating graphics and coding. The SHU Media Exchange team is utilizing Emily’s skills in post-production video editing and animation design.
Danielle Wedderburn is a full-time graduate student at Sacred Heart University working towards a master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and Media Production. She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Bridgeport in 2016. During her undergraduate years, Danielle studied English with a concentration in Creative Writing. She was chosen by many of her professors to be the editor of UB’s literary magazine, Groundswell. She is currently a photography intern at WSHU Public Radio. She has also enjoyed being a part of the pre/post-production team for this year’s Media Exchange, where she got to work closely with her camera to compile videos and photos for the event. With the amount of drive and passion that Danielle has, she is very excited to see where her education and media experience will take her after graduation. Her desire to highlight stories that aren’t often told has led her to combine two of her passions, writing and photography, to steer her career towards becoming a photojournalist.
