Hi there! My name is Hannah Gromen. I am a sophomore at Drake University. I am double majoring in Public Relations and Digital Media Production with a minor in Leadership Education and Development (LEAD).
On campus, I’m an active member of my sorority, Delta Gamma. I am the Undergraduate Research/Programming Assistant for the LEAD program. I am also involved with the Donald V. Adams Leadership Institute, a group that focuses on helping students build their leadership skills. Recently, I joined Positive MENtality. This group works on building safe spaces for the discussion of men’s mental health issues. This semester I was also fortunate enough to be appointed the Vice President of Communications – PR in Drake University’s Student Alumni Association.
In My Spare Time…
I enjoy shooting photography. I developed a love for photography through a course I took in high school. My teacher was so supportive, and I loved finding new ways to capture people and places. Portrait and editorial style photography are my personal favorite to shoot. However, growing up near Chicago has also afforded me quite a bit of opportunity to shoot cityscapes. Featured above is a photograph I took of my friend who practices pointe. I shot this photo as a part of my concentration titled “The Balancing Act.” You can find more photos from my concentration here.
A new hobby I have recently picked up is embroidery. I purchased an embroidery machine through Facebook Marketplace and have since enjoyed learning about how it works. I had no prior knowledge of machine embroidery, but I love creating new designs and seeing them brought to life.
When I’m not creating, I enjoy watching movies. Specifically, I’m a huge Marvel and Star Wars watcher, including the TV show counterparts. I also dabble in horror movies from time to time but can’t watch them alone without freaking out. Consequently, spending time with my family and friends, as well as listening to 70s soft rock tends to take up the remaining hours in the day.
I am thrilled that you have taken the time to visit my website and furthermore engage with the content I’ve produced. I am wildly passionate about communication and media production. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you have regarding my work. To keep up with my daily activities, please feel free to visit me at any of the following social medias:
