Social Media Marketing


Shawn is a 22 year old student from Toronto who recently completed his undergrad studying Psychology: Brain and Cognition and Family/Child Studies at the University of Guelph. Shawn’s main interests include singing, songwriting, swimming and social media marketing. Shawn discovered his passion for social media marketing through a photojournalism project he started called Humans of Guelph. Humans of Guelph is hosted on Facebook and features the lives and stories of individuals living in and around the Guelph area. Shawn was awarded the Be the Change Award from the university and was also a recipient of the Top 40 Under 40 Award by the city of Guelph for fostering a greater sense of community and contributing to local, provisional and federal efforts through this project. Shawn believes that social media has become the most powerful tool for businesses and looks forward to increasing his knowledge in this area to apply to a business of his one day.

Why Digital Media?

Because it is omnipresent and an important field for people who are interested in engaging entrepreneurial endeavours.
