Member Spotlight: Kelsey Pascua

Kelsey is a Social Media Intern at NAMLE and a Graduate Student at Arizona State University.

What do you do?

I am NAMLE’s social media intern who provides content on different social media platforms every month. For this month of September, I am educating TikTok viewers on the different Media Monsters, to educate more people on media literacy.

What is your latest work or project in media literacy?

September is the first month of my internship, and I have been gaining lots of information in terms of media literacy. I was aware of some of the Media Monster habits prior to joining NAMLE, and to be able to educate others through my TikTok videos has been lots of fun.

Why is media literacy important to you?

Information is at our fingertips, and how we take in the information is a responsibility of each individual. Every day is an opportunity to learn and with so many things going digital, media literacy is at an all time high.

What are you most excited about in the media literacy field?

Being able to see media literacy spreading to more schools across the country and world is what I hope to see in the near future.

Why did you become a NAMLE member, what benefits do you see to membership, and how will it support your work?

Prior to joining NAMLE, I didn’t even know media literacy existed. Thanks to this membership, I am able to educate myself, family, friends and others on its importance. The resources of NAMLE is great and I am able to stay up-to-date on media literacy.
