Media&Comm Student Attends Google Event

Ruya Kirac at Google’s new pop-up shop

The #MadebyGoogle event hosted in New York City on October 29 at Google’s new pop-up shop, was attended by one of our own, Ruya Kirac.

At the event, Kirac was given the opportunity to join other online influencers where they tested new Google products before the company releases them to the public.  Kirac was able to test out the new Google Pixel phone, along with the Daydream View virtual reality headset.

Along with testing out the new products, Kirac and the other attendees got to share their opinion on the new technology with Google’s product development team as well as journalists from the NY times, Adweek, and Forbes.

Kirac came back from the experience saying, “At Fisher, many of our projects in the Media & Communication Department involve examining media companies and working with real clients, which helped prepare me to visit Google and to feel less intimidated when networking with members of the media.”
