Megell Strayhorn – Multimedia Editor

I’m a senior from the west suburbs of Chicago. I’m currently working towards a marketing degree at Ferris and holding the multimedia editor position at the Torch. Photography became one of my passions during high school when I began photographing my sneaker collection and posting it to Instagram. I was able to develop quite a following, which included almost 21,000 people at its peak. At that point, companies were compensating me with money and products in exchange for promoting their offerings. I’d say that’s when it clicked to me what marketing was and the impact that it could have. Check out the Instagram accounts I manage (@mogothat and @freaky.sneaks).
