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 a senior at Lasell College, studying Communication with a double concentration in Public Relations and Journalism and Media Writing. 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. Currently, I am the Editor-in-Chief and Campus Correspondent at Her Campus Lasell. My job consists 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’m a Community Development intern for Her Campus Media. I help manage and grow the 350+ chapters around the world, where a LOT of spreadsheets are involved. With this and my job processing books at the college library, it’s a busy life, but I wouldn’t give it up for anything.
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.
