Andrea T. attended college for journalism and acquired many diverse skills, such as writing news stories, think pieces, summaries, and reviews.
Andrea T. specializes in reviews, especially of books and films. She has written for print, radio, online, and TV. She has also founded her own site where she writes about her passion for pop culture. In addition, she further sharpened her communication skills when she founded and set up the first Milwaukee Women's Film Festival, which involved constant communication with other organizations and sponsors, and communication with the media, mostly via press releases. While Andrea does specialize in news and reviews, she is highly adaptable and committed to writing well, no matter the medium or subject.
Andrea studied politics in college, and wrote many pieces on the subject for outlets as diverse as her college newspaper and media in Ghana. She has also interned for local and national political campaigns. Andrea also interned at her local TV news station WISN 12, where her tasks included acting as an anchor for their online streaming newscast, and rewriting various local news stories for their website.
Andrea has always been interested in women's issues and has been writing on the subject for years. In 2016, she decided to get even more involved, so she founded and set up the Milwaukee Women's Film Festival. She selected the films, determined the schedule, planned the opening party, kept the media informed, and secured various sponsors. She then wrote a piece about her experiences for the website The Young Folks.
Andrea's primary focus throughout her writing career has been articles, whether they were news stories, interviews, or opinion pieces. She has written news articles for her college newspaper, media in Ghana, her local TV station WISN 12, professional and informal online sites, and her own site that she founded. These articles have ranged in style from formal and journalistic to informal and humorous. She has also interviewed a variety of people, from academics, children, teenagers, and adults, mostly filmmakers.
Andrea helped write press releases for various political campaigns she interned for. She also got involved with a local film festival, and helped the organizers write press releases, eventually becoming their Communications Director. She also wrote many press releases when she set up her own film festival, the Milwaukee Women's Film Festival.
Andrea has been writing blog posts for years, both on behalf of herself and others. These posts have been for larger, news-oriented sites, as well as smaller, local, more personal sites, some of which were set up by other people, some by herself. Before making her own website, she wrote for a blog that other local writers had founded.
