#TeamRogueHeart welcomes another Collaborator
January 12, 2021 by Diana
Hi, my name is Diana, and I am glad to be a part of the Rogue Heart Media team. I became an official part of the crew in July 2020. Since joining RHM, I have been truly impressed by the type of work that is created, and the types of clients that are served. It is heartwarming to know that the work that is being done, truly is making an impact. Media that Makes a Difference is not just a slogan, it is the guiding light that helps this company forge ahead.
When I’m not collaborating with the rest of the Rogue Heart Media team on how to best embody making a difference in the community through video production, I can be found behind a microphone working as a weekend announcer for a public radio station in Seattle. I am also a wife, and the mother of three elementary school aged children that I homeschool… and just to add even more to my plate, earlier this year I started moonlighting as a freelance audio producer. My plate is definitely full.
I’m originally from Ghana, West Africa, but have spent my formative years growing up in the Pacific Northwest. I am a proud graduate of the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University (Go Cougs!), which is how Megan and I first met! My love for storytelling and broadcast began at 16-years-old, when I was given the opportunity to host a series of episodes of a community AM radio show called Teen Talk. Next month, I will be submitting my first piece to air on NPR.
Some of my favorite projects at Rogue Heart Media so far have been:
– Captioning the Spokane Arts tribute video recognizing the life and work of Kate Vita. It was such a lovely mix of her art and her humanity. I never met her personally, but I feel like I know her thanks to the heartfelt tribute.
– I had the opportunity to bring a new client to the team that works internationally! The organization helps people reclaim food sovereignty in the Philippines. Global Seed Savers is founded and run by a longtime friend of mine, and an old travel buddy of both myself and Megan.
– Megan is a true visionary with big-picture ideas, and I feel lucky to have a chance to help her achieve one of her ideas: obtaining B-Corp Certification and becoming a Social Purpose Corporation. There is a steep learning curve, but so far it has been worthwhile and inspiring to learn about the process. Seeing all of the incredible businesses that are already certified, and how putting social purpose alongside profit can be a way to help create a more just and rooted world, is the right move for RHM!
– It has been special to add feedback and ideas to the team. I had an idea for a gratitude campaign that became more detailed and purposeful than I could have ever envisioned. With the help of Megan, Greta, and Jazmine, the campaign grew to incorporate a more personal touch, and provided opportunities to reflect on our individual blessings, on top of providing a generous financial donation to four deserving local organizations that are making a difference in the greater Spokane region.
After seeing the results of all the great work being done, and learning more about the clients and projects that we work with, I am committed to not only helping with existing projects, but also promoting the good work RHM is doing.
