As a freshman Communication Management and Design major, I am trying to take advantage of the amazing opportunities Ithaca College provides. I am especially excited about the student organizations I have joined. I am a staff writer for the Life and Culture section of The Ithacan. I am also a member of Student Consulting for Non-Profit Organizations (SCNO), a student organization that aims to provide pro-bono communication work to local nonprofits. Within the Park Scholar program I am working on a group project that creates communications materials for the Women’s Opportunity Center in Ithaca.
Outside of media, I am the treasurer of Disability Education, Alliance, and Resources at Ithaca College (DEAR@IC). In high school I did a lot with Unified Theater and Best Buddies, so this is a great way for me to continue pursuing my passion for inclusion. I am also part of Ithaca College’s honors program, and I am trying to find service opportunities within my local community. This is not the first semester I anticipated, but I am trying to make the most of it!
