Recognizable me: Hello everyone! My name is Nina Potter, I am twenty years old and I am from New Canaan Connecticut. This is a picture of me that was taken last September on bid day at my sorority house. Needless to say, I do not always have glitter on my face, or my hair curled for that matter. I am normally wearing a giant T-shirt and an old pair of vans, but I do also enjoy getting dressed up when I go out with my friends.
Where I’m at: After finishing up Maymester in Boulder, I moved back home for the summer. I am currently living in Connecticut with my mom and brother, and I travel to New York to visit my dad and three sisters whenever I have the time.
Next year I am going to be a Junior at University of Colorado Boulder. I recently switched into the CMCI school and changed my major from psychology to pursue a degree in communication, which is something that I am very excited about. This summer I am working full time at a clothing store called “LF” where I help style clients for different events.
What I want: I have always enjoyed writing and after completing WRTG 1150, I realized how many different types of writing styles there are. I am interested in grasping an understanding of a professional tone in writing. I want to be able to feel confident in writing when addressing people in a professional setting. I think that that is an extremely important skill that I can benefit from once I enter the job market.
Because I just recently became a communication major, I also hope that this class will help me become well adjusted to group work. In psychology, everything was very much independent. I think that this course will help me become confident in my abilities to successfully work with a group.
Where to find me: As I mentioned previously, I am currently working full time, however when I get a day off I can be found doing a range of things. I love being outside, so I can most likely be found walking my three dogs (which is not easy to do at the same time). I have one bulldog named Maple, and two jack russell dachshunds named Finn and Willa who take up a lot of my free time.
My friends and I go to the movies more often than I would like to admit. Over the summer it is fair to say that we will see just about every movie that comes out. Recently, my friends and I went to see “The Shallows” starring Blake Lively. I was so excited to see this because I love shark movies and anything with a lot of action, but sadly it turned out to be a bit of a let down.
No matter where I am, there will most likely be music involved. I don’t think it would be far fetched to say that I am listening to music from the moment I wake up to when I fall asleep. I love all kinds of music from country to rap. I recently discovered a group called “Bahari” that I have been listening to a lot lately. Bahari is a band made up of three girls who make very soulful music, which you can also tell from their instagram.
I also love being creative and spend a portion of my free time drawing. I’ve been looking into art classes around Boulder for next year, so hopefully that is something that I will be able to expand on in the future. Because I like to be creative I also am an ambassador for a lifestyle and fashion company called Bond Twenty, meaning I do a lot of promotions for them through different social media outlets!
