Isaiah Vara

I have been using media since I can remember. I started with gaming videos and writing classes and then grew to a Digital Communication Degree. I learned how to create, optimize, and analyze different media channels. Some of my favorite courses were graphic design work. I loved how you can use text and images to guide someone across an asset. For me, that’s why I love this field. It’s a mix of data points and art theory.

2 Truths and 1 Lie About

I hated hot food growing up


As a kid, I didn't like anything hot. It got to the point where I didn't eat ketchup because it was red. It wasn't until Shrek came out with their green/blue ketchup that I fell in love with the taste. After my parents convinced me they were the same thing. I started eating ketchup all the time. After that moment, I started going out of my comfort zone when I could or at least being open to more food, and I currently love hot sauce, hot wings, and the burn of some ghost pepper chili!

I was born on the East Coast.


While I've lived in Oregon most of my life, I was born in Roanoke, Virginia. After I was born, my family moved to California so my dad's side could see us as kids. A couple of years later, my dad got a job offer in Oregon, and my parents took the leap, and my siblings and I moved.

I won my spelling b in 5th grade for my class and then my school.


I do love reading and writing, but I am a terrible speller. So when a spelling b happened for my class, I purposefully spelled the first word wrong to be out as fast as possible. It didn't help me, though, as before we were allowed to write our papers on the computer, I had to get up and find that one old book called a dictionary if I was lucky I could get the fancy electronic dictionary.
