My name is Stephanie Essin. I go to the University of Oregon here where I was born in Eugene. As a true local, I have the privilege to say that I am a full blooded duck. I am interested in all things related to news, but my true desire is to be an anchor/reporter. Here at the UO I am majoring in Journalism with a focus in Electronic Media.
Outside of school, I am involved in 2 extra curricular activities. I am a member of Duck TV News, a student run publication aired Wednesday nights on channel 23 at 10:00 pm. I am a anchor/reporter for Duck TV News, so I am following my dreams on a small scale. I am also a member of the University of Oregon Cheerleading squad. I devote hours weekly to my sport and I really enjoy it. I went to the 2012 Rose Bowl and cheered my team on to victory in front of more than 100,000 fans. I love preforming! The Oregon Cheerleading program has given me many opportunities to network with big names in broadcast journalism. I have met Lee Corso, Erin Andrews and many other big names in sports and ESPN. It has inspired me to look into side-line reporting, but we will see when I graduate.
I love music as well. I write, sing and play guitar. I am inspired by many artists including Fiona Apple, Imogen Heap and the talented Tori Amos. I am a closet music nerd so don’t wear an ACDC or a Black Sabbath band tee around me unless you are prepared to talk about their albums in detail, poser. 🙂 Check out my YouTube page for my latest original songs and multimedia clips!
