My name is Danie Roberts. I am ‘raniedoberts,’ a name I created in 2011 to use as my Twitter handle. It was a fun way for me to express myself by just switching the letters, but eventually it turned into my trademark.
I’m 22 years old and I just graduated from Lasell College! I studied Communication with a double concentration in Public Relations and Journalism and Media Writing, and a minor in Law and Business. My home state is New Hampshire, but my heart belongs in Boston. With my degree, I want to work in the music industry as a music journalist, touring manager, or PR agent for artists. I also want to write books (I specialize in Young Adult Fiction) and be an editor, maybe even an Editor-In-Chief for a magazine.
With all these interests I have, I’ve made a jumpstart in achieving my goals. I served as the Editor-in-Chief and Campus Correspondent for two years at Her Campus Lasell. My job consisted of editing and publishing articles, creating an editorial calendar, and working directly with HC to keep our chapter going strong. I also have this blog, which I started in December 2012. It’s my way to discuss music, college life, books, and everything in between.
Lastly, I was a Community Management intern for Her Campus Media. I helped manage and grow the 350+ chapters around the world, where a LOT of spreadsheets were involved. While my job was only supposed to last one semester, I moved into a higher position in the internship and was able to work on awesome projects!
But now, as a college graduate, I don’t know where I’m going just yet. I currently have two jobs, one as a server and the other working merchandise at a concert venue. I’m going to take my time and see where I’m going from there.
I believe in mental health awareness, women’s rights, inspiring young adults, and good grammar. A cup of tea is what gets me up in the morning, and chocolate is what keeps me going all day. Rock music and dogs make me the happiest. I’m a kid at heart, and still learning how to ‘adult.’
I’m Danie, and I’m ready to change the world.
