About Me

/Who Am I

Born and raised in Malaysia, it is no stranger that Alicia KANG has always been enthralled by the diversity and cultures of this land. Since a young age, Alicia gained a passion for story-telling. Growing up in Kuala Lumpur, Alicia’s inspiration often derive from her country’s rich blend of history and modernity.

Alicia is a proud alumna from Drake University, Iowa, United States. By 2016, she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication with a double major in RADIO/ TV PRODUCING and ADVERTISING, along with a minor in JAPANESE LANGUAGE AND CULTURE, and a concentration in LEADERSHIP.

 

Upon graduation, Alicia successfully landed numerous opportunities related to her field in companies such as ESPN, Alphalete Marketing, and Des Moines Radio Group. By January 2017, the aspiring adult moved to Orlando, Florida and joined The Walt Disney Company, working with the operations team. Alicia’s determination eventually allowed her to explored other departments within the company. She’s had the privilege of working side-by-side with professionals in the fields of show production, stage managing, entertainment, and imagineering.

Throughout these years, Alicia’s storytelling ways have progressed and evolved in terms of copywriting, videography, audio, design, or a combination of them all, her works focus on engaging her audiences in a compelling way. With a flaming passion in her field, Alicia is always in search of more exciting adventures and stories to share with the world, one step at a time.

This multilingual possesses excellent communication skills and is great when liaising with clients and coworkers. Alicia enjoys learning new things and can assimilate new ideas quickly. Her strong suit of organizational and multitasking savvy skills have often put her in lead of others. She values teamwork as much as establishing an exceptional record of working under pressure with deadlines.

Alicia believes in creativity – it’s the initial spark of every project she and her team has accomplished, and it is what keeps her work refreshing and interesting. Creativity keeps this innovative story-teller going beyond her initiation by always sustaining it as a work-in-progress. She considers that creativity empowers long-lasting change, and constant improvement to every leadership initiative.

Alicia’s core and operating principles help to shape herself as a leader with a unique set of strengths and weaknesses. One of this individual’s most prominent strengths is her ability to ignite passion and energy, and initiate innovative change. “The POSITIVE THINKER sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and ACHIEVES THE IMPOSSIBLE.”

Believing that her leadership credo is to be constantly developing, it puts Alicia in  the position of always on the lookout to broaden her professional network, as she continues to enhance her knowledge in the field of advertising and storytelling multimedia.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels… The ones who see things differently… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

…they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

testimonials

 

I had the pleasure of working with Alicia Kang for over a year at the Des Moines Radio Group. I realized then some of her many talents and passion for being a broadcast professional. I remember one morning in particular when she was the guest host on my station – 93.3 KIOA. Alicia brought in a very large stringed musical instrument and played it on the air. Amazing! Talking to her about her heritage, her love for music and the many languages she speaks is truly remarkable – and a treat for our listeners.

Alicia is one of the most interesting, charismatic and certainly one of the smartest people to come through our well-known DMRG Internship Program. Alicia will blaze a trail wherever she goes and she will be a strong asset to any organization. I fully recommend Alicia without reservation. I would also welcome any inquiry on her behalf.

TIMOTHY WHITE, Brand Manager 93.3 KIOA at DES MOINES RADIO GROUP, USA.
Alicia is one of the most driven, passionate and intelligent students I’ve ever come across. And on top of that, she is a lot of fun to have in class...
CHRIS SNIDER, Associate Professor DRAKE UNIVERSITY, USA.
Alicia was one of the best coworkers I could ask for. She was always reliable, willing to help, and had one of the best attitudes on the job. It was a pleasure getting to know her and work with her...
K. MANN, Operations Cast Member at WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT, USA.
Alicia is a dedicated team player who is committed to help reach my goals. In the past, we worked together in multiple setting such as professional photo shoots for International Student Association's committee... Undoubtedly, she is one of the best people that you can count on in terms of getting deadlines meet, while producing quality results.
Y.C. GOOI, Founder TOUCHED PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO, USA.
Alicia was an outstanding student at Help University and I had the pleasure of having her in three of my subjects. Her interest in languages is remarkable (she is fluent in more than 4 languages) and her versatility is also an advantage in whatever tasks she is entrusted with. Alicia is a very capable, caring and creative woman (she also plays Chinese traditional musical instruments) who is willing to give her best in everything she does. I would recommend her with no hesitations.
