Short Intro.  Hi, my name is Steven Lau. I love to build computers and spend my spare time playing video games with my updated graphics. 

Where Have I Been? I graduated from Brooklyn college with a B.S. in Business Management Finance and psychology. During my time at Brooklyn college, I was a college assistant that was responsible of signing students in and shuffling books back into the shelf. 

Where Am I Now? Currently, I am a digital marketing apprentice at Coop, where I will be learning on digital marketing skills that are needed in the market today, google adwords, seo, sem, and media planning. I am also a recent seller on craigslist that earned over $1000. 

Where Am I Going? My goal right now is to become an assistant media planner with the emphasis on out of home advertising. Hopefully after 5 years, I would become a media supervisor.

2 Companies I really admire and Why

        

One of the company that I really admire is blizzard entertainment. The company always tries to push the gaming boundaries by incorporating new elements that never existed. They also tried to reach different type of audience by developing different types of games.

       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.

Riot games is definitely a huge company in the gaming industry especially moba. Riot games respect their employee a lot and let them lead the creative design for character development. They also are not scared to try new things. 

Let me tell you about ...

Setting the stage. I just graduated from my high school and was about begin my adventure as a college freshmen in Brooklyn college. 

The beginning. I was always shy and nervous around people. Speaking in general was definitely one of the bigger issue that I needed to tackle. Learning how to communicate effectively and expand my vocabularies was vital to my success.  

The middle. In order for me to grow up, I have to overcome my nerve of speaking. I took speech classes to improve my talking habits. I also learned to speak more slowly and calmly so people can understand me better. 

The End. I began to speak more often then I would normally would. I was also able to make a lot of friends by speaking up for myself. I also began to express myself perfectly using words. 

Reflection. I learned that I was able to overcome my obstacl by practicing communication everyday and that every skills will require day to day practice to become better.
