Storify created by Allie Kirkman for ENG 213: Digital Literacies.
This text focuses on the moment when I realized I had transformed my own identity. My Storify project documents the process I went through in understanding the bigger picture in terms of maintaining a professional online presence. During my first year at Ball State, I recognized that the identity I portrayed online was not the identity I wanted future employers to see. Since then, I have maintained a very professional Twitter account as an aspiring journalist. Ultimately, I realized that I had to give up one identity for another in order to be successful in my career.
