Kaylea Forsythe

 Welcome to my E-Portfolio. My name is Kaylea Forsythe and I am currently a Film, Photography and Visual arts and English double major with both the Roy H. Park school of Communication and the Humanities and Sciences department at Ithaca College! I am currently a freshmen planning on graduating in 2016. Already I have taken action regarding my future career path and other general interests. Immediately I pursued a double major with English based on my interest in story as an overall method of communication. Studying Shakespeare and works of Theatre will hopefully have a positive effect on my pursuit of visual communication in the film industry. I also plan on being an active member of the community by participating in service saturdays which are volunteering events for the Ithaca community. I have already been to several Career Services based lectures on the dynamics of professional communication related to etiquette and the importance of networking along with community service.

Outside of my majors I have interests in Art History, Theatre and Politics. I plan on exploring these further through the local Art community in both theatrical performances or art galleries. I will be a student of Ithaca College for four years and I plan to use that time wisely. I am especially excited for study abroad programs in London, a semester in Los Angeles program and Leadership retreats done through career services. By graduation I hope to be a well-rounded professional with the leadership skills and technical skills necessary to compete in the constantly changing field of communication.

I look forward to deconstructing techniques of various filmmakers especially in my Film Aesthetics and Analysis course and later focusing on using what I've learned in Cinema production courses. I know I have chosen the right path for myself and am actively learning about my passion every day that I spend at Ithaca College. Utilizing opportunities is just the first step in my four year educational path to a degree and ultimately my ideal career.
