We had a chance to catch up with Jessika Davidson, founder of the HerCampus SFA branch, to give an insight of why she wanted to bring HerCampus to SFA!
The President/Editor-In-Chief of the chapter is responsible for all of the content on the My Campus page. Each My Campus page has 7 regular features on the pink menu bar: News, Blog, Celebrity, Cutie, Photo, Poll, and an Event.
Why did you start a HerCampus branch for SFA?
I really thought Her Campus was a refreshing way to approach journalism. And we really don't have any outlets for students who want to be entertainment/lifestyle writers and bloggers so I figured it was no time like the present to start it.
What did you want to accomplish for yourself and the site?
I really wanted Her Campus to be the go-to site for fun stuff going on the campus. I also wanted to gain experience writing.
What was the hardest part?
The hardest part was managing a team. I would gain and lose writers every week! I also was taking 7 classes while managing it and that was horrible.
What did you like the most?
I liked being able to meet new people, being able to write and just in general promote SFA.
How will you incorporate what you learned/experienced from HerCampus SFA in your career?
HerCampus definitely opened me up to Social Media Management and Digital Content Management as a career. I never considered it before HerCampus.
What are you thought/hopes for the future of HerCampus SFA?
I really hope HerCampus grows, so a couple of years from now, when im at work and want to look back on my college years, I can check out HerCampus and see it thriving. That would be dope.
I would personally like to thank Jessika for starting the branch and bringing something this unique to SFA! Jessika Davidson is a 22 year old senior from Houston, TX graduating this December with a bachelors in Mass Communications; Radio/TV. Congradulations and good luck on your job hunt Jessika!
