Hello! My name is Renee Young. I am a graduate student at Sam Houston State University working on my Master’s in Technical Communication.
My interest in technical writing began when I worked for Computer Explorers. I loved proofreading and testing the new curriculum guides produced by our product developers. The writing project with iFixit will be great practice for my future goals as a technical communicator.
I am excited to be working with iFixit because of the valuable service you provide. People, like me, who like to repair their belongings, look for how-to guides. I have used instructional videos, from YouTube, to replace the damper assembly on my Frigidaire refrigerator, change my 3-prong dryer cord for a 4-prong dryer cord, and replace the capacitor on my air conditioning unit. I gained a feeling of accomplishment and saved money at the same time. Smaller repairs that I have done are simple cell phone battery replacements.
