Maura Ford
Trinity College Dublin, Ireland – BA in English Literature

Experience: Content Writing & Editing at Groupon, Working as an Offline Editor for Glossier Chicago. 
Ideal Job in 10 years: I’m looking to be an expert in Brand Development for smaller creative endeavors that really resonate with me—music, the arts, nonprofits. I want to be able to lean on my writing/content creation background to help innovative ideas & people get their messages across clearly and with impact.  
What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern?  I’m excited for the MSLCE program to help me diversify my perspectives and lead me to a fulfilling and creative role. 
What are you most looking forwards to about the MSLCE program? Getting my feet wet with an internship is really exciting to me.
Favorite (song/movie/show/festival/exhibition … )?  Pitchfork Music Festival is one of my favorites—I appreciate the balance of a “Chicago feel” with a solid reflection in the lineup of the content the site has published throughout the year.
