This week for an activity, we were asked to personalize our websites to tailor to our interests and to expand them beyond the art 110 class. I transformed my site to a more sleek and professional one that has subject matter regarding my major: Criminal Justice. I changed my title, got rid of the colorful background, made my contact information accessible through widgets, added categories: art and criminal justice, and made my site easier to navigate. Also, the new theme I chose displayed the tags and categories easier to find as well as makes the posts easier to read.

I wanted it to be easy on the eyes and straight to the point, where my audience can easily find out the information they are seeking. In the future, I would like to link it to other accounts that tell of my involvement in the criminal justice system. For now, I have included a post that gives some background into why I chose to become a criminal justice major and what I hope to achieve in my career.

I am very happy with my site and am excited that I have a place to share my passion for justice and the criminal justice system.

ROP Forensics: The best choice I made for me in high school

I had an idea that I wanted to go to college and major in Criminal Justice with a minor in forensics, but I wasn’t positive it was what I wanted to do until I took a ROP forensics class in high school. My teacher saw my interest and supported me all the way through the semester, even nominating me for an ROP scholarship which I had the pleasure of receiving. I attended a ceremony where I received the scholarship and a certificate, and was featured in the local newspaper (seen above). It felt amazing to be recognized for all my passion and my hard work.Mock trials, crime scene investigating, and scientific evidence were the things that kept me inspired to pursue a career as a detective. The idea that I can help the population by using my knowledge to produce justice was an intriguing one.I always knew I loved helping others and always knew I loved science. That class, putting my knowledge and skills to the test, helped me see that I could do what I love and that I belong in the Criminal Justice field.
