This is the portfolio site of Monica Hübner. You can find a collection of my work listed below.
I am from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany where I gratuaded in 2009 from the St. Irmengard Gymnasium, also known as an high school in America. I worked from 2009 till 2014 at the Costum Control and started my studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich until I transfered in 2014 to the University of Denver where I am about to graduate in August 2017.

I started writing for the University of Denver student newspaper, the DU Clarion, the fall quarter 2016. My first published article made it into print as well as the online edition of the Clarion. I wrote about the refugee crisis and introduced with it the relativly new student organisation on campus – No lost generation.

Coding my own Webpage
In my ‘Web Content Development’ class I learned the basics of HTML, CSS and jS coding. The result can be seen on my personal designed portfolio webpage.
Infographic Story Telling
I learned to use the power of illustrations and graphics (on Adobe Illustrator) to tell stories in the “Data Journalism” class that I’ve taken. This class also included further coding labs to be able to display work on the web (D3 labs).

I also learn the art of producing films. The progress of my film work that I have done in relation with my film minor can be checked out on vimeo.
My two most current video stories are related to sport and sports politics. The first one, Erik Read – a portrait, is about a young Canadian skier. My second story, Ready for Olympia?, is about Almaty’s (KAZ) readiness to host Olympic winter games. For both stories I worked entirely on my own.
I like to point out my first video story that I produced – Stepping ahead- planning a career – which I did in cooperation with Siobhan Stocks-Lyons. I enjoyed this team project a lot and liked the shared work experience.
This is my first radio story poject that I have done. The biggest challenge for me was finding the right edits and cuts, as you don’t have a video line supporting your audio. The story has the title ‘The refugee cirsis and a new student organisation at DU -No Lost Generation’.
Online News Story
My online news story is about the past presidential election. In ‘What new influences do media have on the 2016 presidential election’ I already portrayed the incrased amount of use of social media. Although at this piont non of the experts I was talking to thought the impact would be the way it turned out.
Collected Twitter Roundup
Troughout the fall quarter 2016 I had to tweet for two classes of mine regularly. After having collected a few tweets, I published in word press a roundup of the most recent ones.
