I have chosen DCLead because:
I’m captivated by the initiatives taken by this program in terms of its diversity, interdisciplinary research trajectory and how it aims to play a central role in bringing people together. My interests related to new media, communications, governance, public administration, gender policies, and sociology align with several core themes that encompasses the DCLead ethos. This program is the natural step for my personal calling and I strongly believe that it will facilitate me with better understanding of digital strategies needed to turn policy choices into impact. I chose DCLead because it provides me with the ideal platform to achieve the required tutelage that I need to drive change in my society through digital mediums. Being surrounded by experienced faculty and peers who share the same intellectual interests as me makes for a rewarding learning environment. This academic journey critically analyzes how present-day cultures are molded by social media, digital activism, online mobilization, data, algorithms, platforms, etc. I am hoping to delve into the intricacies of what it truly means to live in an ever-evolving age of new media. At the end of the day, I want to be in a position where I learn to unabashedly question the status quo, develop well-informed opinions and seek new perspectives. If you’re passionate about changing the narrative, this is the place for you.
