Short Intro.  My name is Morrell Gaskins I am a recent graduate exploring the many dimensions of the digital marketing as an apprentice at COOP.

Where Have I Been? I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing  from Saint Michael's College. Where I was a member of the men's basketball team for four years. I used my time volunteering in the surrounding Colchester community in different organizations on and off campus including the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, volunteering at the local juvenile rehab center, and make-a-wish foundation.    

Where Am I Now? I am currently a youth coach with Kids In The Game with working their after school program as well as coaching the grassroots program. I also am a digital marketing apprentice at COOP where I am learning stills such as google analytics, adwords, stem, seo, and excel metrics.

Where Am I Going? In the near future I hope to implement my skills and experiences as a digital marketer to help give make to the youth in the community. 10 years from now I see myself as a coach or a mentor to multiple children using my knowledge gained as a collegiate athlete and in business to help better their lives.

2 Companies I really admire and Why

        

IamOther is under the umbrella of lifestyle clothing created by Pharrell Williams. They express individuality as being one of the greatest form of wealth a person can have which is an ideal that holds true to my values. They also help use the profits from the clothing line to help change the world one kid at a time through science, technology, engineering, arts, math, and motivation.  

       Twitch is an online live streaming platform where broadcasters can release and perform their content in real-time with viewer interaction live. I first found out of Twitch several years ago when I wanted to find a hobby that doesn't involve being the viewer but a content creator. Now as a live broadcaster, I consider Twitch as my second hobby, influencing many individuals around the world with my creative content and entertainment.

Big Apple Basketball has been helping youth in New York City since its establishment in 1999. Helping high school basketball players achieve their dreams through academic support and exposure to college coaches. I admire the founder and head of operations Jason Curry for following his passion of New York City basketball and youth development to create this non-profit organization.   

Let me tell you about ...

Setting the stage. When did this happen? What was the organization/college? What was your role? 

The beginning. What was the challenge or situation you were facing?

The middle. What actions did you take? Why did you make those decisions? Be specific!

The End. What were the end results/outcomes?

Reflection. What did you learn? How can this be applied to this and other roles?
