Who are we?
This group is composed of three students:
Elizabeth Christensen, Vanessa Roman, and Nicholet Deschine.
Following are a short description of each student.
Christensen is a senior at Arizona State University graduating
with a major in Criminal Justice and a minor in Family
Studies. Elizabeth found this topic important because
she is expecting her first child in January and it is
important to her to learn how media has numerous effects
on a child's development. She enjoys watching "Passions"
on daytime TV and listening to music.
Roman is a senior at Arizona State University graduating
with a B.A. in the field of Family Studies and Child
Development. She is very interested in learning about
this topic because she wants to look for a career with
children after she graduates. Vanessa enjoys watching
movies and TV and has no scary side effects.
Deschine is a junior at Arizona State University with
a major in Family Studies and Child Development. Nicholet
has a one year old daughter who loves to play with her
dad's "Game Boy Advance." She is interested
in the effects of video game play because her husband
is addicted to "Unreal Tournament."
