Reflection is a large part of the ePortfolio process, so it is only fitting that our showcase ceremonies featured the stories of our terrific winners about their experiences with ePortfolio. Some of our winners began building their ePortfolios on their own, while others started the process as part of a class. Some took to ePortfolio right away, while others needed a bit more convincing. No matter how their ePortfolio journey started, each story ended with success.
At the New York ceremony, Juhi Laungani, described her ePortfolio as “a representation of not only my life during college, but bits and pieces from my past that helped shape my personality significantly before entering Pace as a freshman.” Her enthusiasm for ePortfolio showed in her presentation.
We were happy to celebrate three out of our four Pleasantville winners at the Westchester ceremony. Briana Finelli told the audience how she made her ePortfolio during the winter break of her freshman year after hearing about it in UNV101.She was surprised when she came back from break and was the only one of her peers to do so!
Stephanie Jacovino shared her experience from a recent interview for an internship where the employer asked about the ePortfolio. She said he liked it so much that he wanted to make one for himself!
Emily Wolfrum describes the ePortfolio process as a great experience that all students should try. She is glad that ePortfolio allowed her to adequately showcase her work in a professional portfolio that she is proud of. “One of the most important things they tell you when you are a communications major looking for a job in journalism is that it doesn’t matter where you went to school or what you majored in, all they care about it your portfolio.”
We had a wonderful time celebrating each of our winners. Congratulations to all!
