It’s all about ME!

Recently I have been conducting interviews for the staff here at the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology, and I got to thinking “why not interview myself so people can get to know me better?” So if you have some spare time, take a second and read all about me!

Q: What high school did you attend?

A: I went to Upper Darby High School in Drexel Hill, PA
Morgan McLaughlin
Q: What college did you go to?

A: Well right after I graduated high school in 2013, I was accepted to the Art Institute of Philadelphia for Fashion Marketing and Management, but I didn’t go and honestly I don’t know why. Then I went to Delaware County Community College but didn’t have a great experience so I dropped out. Finally after a year I enrolled here at the P.I.T and I couldn’t be happier!

Q: What was/is your major and how long did it take for you to achieve it?

A: Right now my current major is Business Administration, and I am still in the process of earning my Associates degree, but it usually takes about 2 years.

Q: Was there ever a time where you wanted to give up and take the easy route?

A: ALWAYS, unfortunately. I was one of those kids in high school, and even sometimes to this day I get lazy, and I want everything to be easy. But I have been through some tough obstacles that were not easy at all, and I overcame them and became a better person because of it. People tend to make success complicated, myself included. If you show up, do your work the best you can, maybe even put in a little extra effort and strive for your dreams, you’ll get it. Then one day you’ll look back at how “easily rough” it was, if that makes sense?

Q: Any hobbies?

A: Well on and off I have been going to the gym and I am hoping this year my parents get me a membership to LA Fitness for Christmas, because for once I want to be able to finish something, plus I want to become healthier. Usually when it comes to the gym and I, it just doesn’t work out. It’s that ‘being lazy’ thing, I presume. I have a gut feeling that when I do start it in 2015, I am going to stick with it and my gut feelings are right 95% of the time. Other than working out, I do love to write, obviously, and I also love love love reading fashion magazines and sometimes sketching designs!

Q: Dream job?

A: I was 110% sure I wanted to be a whole bunch of things but once I started here at P.I.T  and got the job as the Social Media blogger I knew I wanted to be a journalist for a fashion magazine like ELLE, Marie Claire, Vogue, Nylon, etc.. Although I still wouldn’t mind being a wardrobe stylist for a movie/ TV show.

Q: What’s your favorite TV show, song, and color?

A: Favorite TV show is “Reign” on the CW – seriously, I’m obsessed. I highly recommended it. If you ask my boyfriend he’ll tell you I have way too many favorite songs! But right now I would have to say that my favorite song is anything on the new Taylor swift album “1989,” which is odd because I never liked Taylor Swift before. And my favorite color is orange. It’s just reminds me of summer and I think is fun and bright!

If you would like to know me a little bit better or suggest some topics for the PIT Blog, you can always email me or visit me on the Media Campus, I’m always floating around here somewhere!
