I was raised mostly in Vancouver, Washington, across the river from the wonderful Portland, OR. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Digital Technology and Culture at Washington State University in Pullman. Finding the crossroad of people and technology was really exciting for me. I loved the content in the DTC program, and I loved the professors. I soaked up all the information and wanted to know more. So, by the time I graduated, I'd made the decision to stay at WSU to get my Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Composition. I focused on how people volunteer personal information, and those kinds of information, on Facebook
My passion and interest in the place technology holds in culture led me to the Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. My doctoral work involves studying the ways that young women use social media, specifically YouTube, as a site (or space) of empowerment.
I am currently on the lookout for a career where I can bring my skills and experience. If you're interested in working with me, I'm interested, too. I can be reached at clark.laur@gmail. Dot com.
What else? I am extroverted and I laugh loudly. I have a strong attraction to nail polish and nail art (and am open to suggestions for storage because my collection continues to grow). I am a feminist, a liberal, a coffee drinker, red meat- and dairy-free for health, a lover of birds and dogs, and I'm a fan of YouTube.
