portrait Hello! My name is Katie Blasewitz.

I was born in Orlando, Fla., but raised in Apopka, Fla., by my two wonderful parents Mike, a high school principal, and Helena, a homemaker. I have two brothers, Mike, an account executive for the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Brian, a junior social science education major at Florida State University.

My interest in mass media communications and journalism began in high school where I worked for Edgewater High School's newspaper The Eagle Eye. I was also an editor for three years for our yearbook, Odasagiah.

I have a bachelor's degree from Florida State University in Mass Media Communication with minors in English and journalism. At FSU I was involved in several organizations including Association for Women in Communications, Advertising Club, Mock Interview Program and America Reads. I was also on staff at Florida A & M University's The Famuan as a staff writer and assistant copy desk chief.

Currently, I am working on my master's degree in journalism at the University of Florida. In my free time I am a freelance writer for LaTeen Magazine, a Hispanic teen magazine based in Boulder, Colo.

My academic interests include magazine feature writing, copy editing, new media, magazine layout design and Web design.

My hobbies include reading, writing, travel, design, camping, hiking and various other outdoor activities.
