I’m posting this to explain my latest assignment in which I had to create a nameplate for myself. I chose to use the website flavors.me to create my own about me page. I included a photo of myself, inserted a picture to use as a background, provided links to my social media pages, and wrote a brief about me paragraph.
I found that I had a slightly hard time trying to identify and describe myself as a professional. I know what qualities I possessed but I had a hard time trying to correlate them into a professional bio. On the other hand, in a weird way I really enjoyed messing around with different backgrounds. I like that I could choose a background I liked and that I thought suited me. I did have to mess around with it quite a bit though so that it wouldn’t be too difficult to read my bio on top.
