Abrielle Pham
Harnessing the power of both visual communication and dynamic storytelling, Abrielle Pham has walked the halls of Moore Norman Technology Center, to complete not one, but two programs. Completing both Digital Cinema and Television Production (DCTP) and Graphic Design at MNTC, Abrielle helped to accomplish her personal career goals: a flourishing career in Marketing and Advertising.
 
While at Moore Norman, Abrielle was also a part of the Careertech Student Organization - SkillsUSA. She was not only focused on gaining technical skills but also honing soft skills, leadership abilities, and teamwork. She competed for the MNTC SkillsUSA team at various levels and held both the position of President and Reporter. “The categories I competed in were life-long skills that I have continued to grow in every day. Those categories included Job Skills Demonstration, Community Service Project, and Customer Service,” Abrielle said.
 
From the onset, Abrielle realized the symbiotic relationship between the DCTP and Graphic Design programs. “I knew that both correlated with one another and being able to understand the background of each helps when producing the other,” she shares, reflecting on her immersive experience at MNTC. A series of internships including work with the Oklahoma City Energy soccer team and deadCenter Film Festival led to Abrielle landing a full-time position as a Content Creator and Community Manager with a marketing agency based out of Los Angeles.
