Isabella Hoeppner, Video Intern
Hi everybody! My name is Isabella Hoeppner and I am a student at Michigan State University. My major is Media & Information with a minor in Graphic Design. From 2013 to 2015 I attended Lansing Community College obtaining a General Associate’s Degree. Once I get my Bachelor’s degree I hope to be a filmmaker whether in Michigan or in another state. I enjoy several aspects of filmmaking from pre-production to post-production. Since I was a child, I was creative through writing, acting, filming, and drawing. I also have a yearning to learn and explore new things. Over the past year, I taught myself how to use video editing and graphic design software. I also like to watch documentaries and listen to audiobooks. I am one of eight in my family. We live on a farm with many animals and vegetation. I am an animal-lover and enjoy nature. At UnoDeuce, I hope to obtain the information and experience needed for my dream job in video production. God bless and have a wonderful day
