My name is Zack Peñalva, I am currently a student at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky. I have always loved writing and had an interest in the field of journalism. I am currently pursuing my degree in journalism and digital storytelling with minors in public relations and Spanish.
During my time at Asbury I’ve had a lot of chances to grow and get familiar in all sorts of media. I have worked as the sports editor for the campus newspaper The Asbury Collegian for the past two years, assigning and creating articles for the print and online editions. I have worked for the Asbury Sports Information office as a post-game writer and social media manager. I scheduled posts for the department’s Instagram page and created graphics to promote upcoming events. I was a designer for Explore Jessamine, a guide magazine distributed by the Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce. I also managed the social media for a 5k put on by the Hands and Feet Project in Lexington, Kentucky.
