I could not come up with a topic for today’s post, so I suppose I will formally introduce myself via blog.

By now, you have probably caught on…my name is Hannah. I am 22 years old; although, many people mistake me as a high school student. This makes me hopeful that when I am 50, I will look like I am in my 20s or 30s.
This past May, I graduated from Western Kentucky University with my B.A. in History & Social Studies with a concentration in Secondary Education. However, I decided I did not want to teach. That was a great epiphany to have months before I graduated (sarcasm). Thankfully, I found a Master’s program I absolutely love. Now I am pursuing an M.S. in Instructional Design. When people ask what I am getting my Master’s in, I get the same look: the “I have no idea what that is, but I am just going to nod my head and sound impressed” look. In short, Instructional Design entails analyzing an educational or work setting, addressing the performance needs of students or employees, and developing strategies or products to address needs (i.e., training materials). It is a pretty broad field, but my dream job would be to work as an instructional designer for the NCAA.
Currently, I work as an athletic tutor for the Student Athlete Success Center at WKU. I love my job so much. I work with WKU’s athletes, get to know them really well, and watch them succeed off the field, as well.
- I have one older sister who is married
- I have 3 cats, but only 1 is my favorite (Molly)
- As of July, I have taken up archery (and love it)
I believe that is enough about me!
