Zoe Johnson loves to draw.  More importantly, Zoe loves to draw comic strips.  At 8 years old she has already created two memorable characters Jamie and Robert Johnson.  Jamie, rocking a high-top fade, is often the brunt of the more clever and happy-go-lucky Robert. Stay tuned for more from the humorous Tales of Jamie and Robert Johnson.  

Zoe is a student at the Nightingale-Bamford School in New York City and lives with her family in Harlem, NY. 

Jamie and Robert

 

Zoe Johnson - 2012Fast forward a decade:  Zoe is now a student at The College of William & Mary.  She writes for her school newspaper.  Her sense of humor was apparent in her cartoons from an early age.  Now she demonstrated her wit in writing.  Here is an excerpt from a recent article she wrote:

Bring Back Beyoncé: No One Will Treasure Bruno

by: Zoe Johnson, September 16, 2013, Confusion Corner Variety

Recently, I have felt a sense of disillusionment with the College of William and Mary community. Not only because we have yet to secure Beyoncé for the annual welcome back concert, but, more importantly, because of our non-existent reactions to the latest major world news.

Beyonce Knowles Super Bowl XLVII Halftime ShowIs the United States at war with Syria? Is Vladimir Putin the next Batman? Does Bill Nye the Science Guy stand a chance on the new season of “Dancing With the Stars?” These are important issues that warrant discussions, protests, rallies or anything to show that the students of the College are not trapped in the pernicious College Bubble. I have not seen or heard that any of the aforementioned community gatherings have happened and I am shocked. The world is in a state of hysteria and we are all too mesmerized by the Sadler Center’s face-lift to see it. Perhaps most disconcerting is the lack of riots on campus to the announcement that Bruno Mars is the performer for the 2014 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Let’s just let that settle in for a moment. Bruno Mars is performing at the halftime show of the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl — the most watched television event of the year. If you are like me, when you read this announcement, time seemed to slow down, your heart rate increased, and somehow you heard the opening chords of “The Scientist” by Coldplay all at once. Those are all signs of panic, an understandable reaction to this news.  Read the entire article.


This video was prepared for the digital marketing course, Strategic Digital Media at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, College of William and Mary. We were required to make a 1 minute video pitch to showcase our skills and talents for potential employers. I decided to imitate an infomercial (i.e. overly corny, bad acting, etc.) for my video to showcase my creativity and sense of humor.
