This is a placeholder for the homepage of your portfolio site.

You want to focus on the “big picture” here. Keep your text brief, and carefully consider any pictures you use here. Remember, this page is the “first impression” that visitors will have of your portfolio site.

Here are some possible topics:

  • What made you choose to attend Trinity College?
  • What strengths do you have that will help you to be successful?
  • What kind of skills do you need to develop to help you become a successful Trinity student?
  • What honors or awards have you received?
  • Are you a member of any clubs? Do you do volunteer work somewhere?
  • What does life after Trinity ideally have in store for you?

Also, consider adding links to make connections to other more detailed pages of your site. All the content on your site should be accessible through other site navigation, but providing some “deep links” here, can help direct visitors to content you want to highlight.
