A dreamer: Est. 1992. That’s who I am.
I dream in my life, I dream in my sleep, I dream online.
I believe who I am online is just an extension of who I am in real life. I am the same person online and offline. My online identity image presents every side of myself—from a professional headshot, a sports action shot, a picture from my personal life, an image to visually represent myself as a dreamer, and an old photograph from my past to show how far I’ve come. I like to use different social media sites to portray different aspects of my personality. Social media is one of the best and most powerful mediums of personal expression, so why not express yourself as exactly who you are? It’s a place to display your true self to your “connections,” “followers,” “friends,” and to the world.
On LinkedIn, I am professional. I dream of my future life and my future career, while I pursue my dream job. I connect to Virginia Tech Alumni, marketing and advertising professionals, companies I respect, and recruiters who’d like to talk.
On Twitter, I am innovative. I tweet about life, dreams, quotes, music, sports. I retweet ideas, inventions, issues involving society and humanity. It’s my main source to voice my opinions, express my ideals and beliefs, and learn about the thoughts of others.
On Facebook, I am relatable. I share what makes me laugh, what makes me smile, what makes me cry. I repost for a cause and for a purpose. I post to my friends and my family—I talk to them and catch up on life. And most importantly, I update my “friends” on my dreams, my life, and my daily happenings.
On Instagram, I am adventurous. I show my dreams coming to life. Through images I depict who I am, who I want to be, where I want to be, what I love, and who I love. I see the world through other peoples eyes, and I travel to places I’ve never been before just by looking through a screen.
A dreamer: Est. 1992. That’s who I am. That’s who I’ll always be.
