ThreeSixty Alumna Aisha Eady was recently elected to ThreeSixty Journalism’s Leadership Council. Eady, who is the founder of digital design agency Aisha Eady Studios, participated in ThreeSixty in 2002 and continues to value that experience.
“As a high school student, ThreeSixty served as a container for my interest in pursuing journalism,” Eady said. “My experience was a training ground for asking great questions, learning how to navigate conversations and writing with a purpose.”
Eady subsequently applied her media and communication passion at the University of Minnesota, where she earned a B.A. in Journalism and Communication. She wrote for Star Tribune and Newsweek, and also worked in communications roles for several nonprofits before launching her digital design agency.
“Aisha is a perfect example of a ThreeSixty alumna who has leveraged her camp experience and connections through the program to become a highly sought-after professional in the communications industry,” said Engagement Manager Bao Vang. “She’s a perfect fit to continue to share the success stories of ThreeSixty alumni and help the organization grow and innovate.”
Aisha Eady Studios helps entrepreneurs, small business owners and those on the cusp of career transition share their professional stories and establish a stellar impression online.
“My decision to join the ThreesSixty Leadership Council was driven by the desire to see the next generation of storytellers hone their craft,” she said. “All of those skills have served me well in both my personal and professional life.”
