Timberlake Media is thrilled to announce Yaling Tan as our 13th recipient of the Patricia McCarty Advertising and Marketing Scholarship at Columbia College. Yaling is a senior Marketing Communication major (advertising concentration) and math minor student at Columbia College Chicago. Having interests in two different directions, she finds passion in both copywriting and marketing research. Yaling currently works as a medical interpreter at local Chicago hospitals. And, having first hand knowledge in the medical field, she has a desire to work on pharmaceutical advertising in the future. Other than copywriting, Yaling also enjoys composing lyrics. Her portfolio now reaches nearly 100 titles, mostly written in Chinese. Yaling believes this short form of writing has provided her the necessary writing skill in which she can apply to copywriting. After graduation next year, Yaling hopes to pursue a job in either copywriting or marketing research.
