News, Views, Updates and More about the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
My name is Tiffani Muller and I am inviting you on my journey of growth, discovery, and exposure of the 2014 Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF). Before we begin our journey, I would like to invite you to get to know the person behind the computer.
I am from a small town in Northern New Jersey and have lived there my whole life. That is, until I discovered Ithaca College back in 2009 when I took my first steps on campus as a wide-eyed freshman.
I spent my next four years here getting my Bachelor of Science in Communication Management and Design, and minoring in Deaf Studies and American Sign Language. I graduated in May of 2013 and when I was accepted into Ithaca College’s Master’s Program in Communications, I immediately knew this was the right program for me.
While enrolled as an undergraduate student, I was part of an amazing team that shaped who I am as a leader, team member and motivator. I cheered on the Ithaca College Cheerleading team for four years and became captain and president of the club my senior year. Currently, I am the coach of the Ithaca College Cheerleading team.
When I graduate in the summer of 2014, I hope to pursue a job in the field of Human Resources. Recruiting is something I have an itch to get more immersed in and FLEFF will provide this opportunity for my growth. This semester I will be recruiting interns and leading them into the world of film, ideas, discussion, music, art and politics.
Now, you may be wondering how my ideas relate to FLEFF and, besides leadership, what can I provide for the future interns. During my undergraduate studies, I received an opportunity to take a painting course. Not only did I get to learn the basics of painting, I was introduced to a world of art and intellectual ideas.
Since then, I have visited museums in the area, some painting studios and use the art facilities when I get the urge to get my feelings out on a canvas. Ithaca College has already provided me an opportunity to learn things I never though I would have the chance to be immersed in.
Something that I hold near to my heart is traveling, and, unfortunately, I never got the chance to study abroad during my undergraduate years. FLEFF is my opportunity to learn about the cultures and ideas of the places I dreamed of visiting. I truly feel lucky to have been placed with an assistantship where I can not only learn, but also make an imprint on those who will be here after me.
