Bold Points






Hello, I am currently a sophomore marketing major with a minor in communications studying at the University of St. Thomas, where my main interest is exploring communication strategies. Beyond the academics, I enjoy photography, where visual storytelling becomes a potent tool for capturing and conveying narratives. I'm looking forward to getting in touch with industry experts who are passionate about effective communication and the ever-evolving field of marketing. My dream is to become an entrepreneur and run my own business. I still have yet to decide on my dream business because I have many passions, but I know that I want to create a unique business that no one has ever seen before. Traveling is one of my biggest passions. Some of my biggest trips were to Steamboat Springs and the Grand Canyon. I have enjoyed studying abroad during college to London and would love the opportunity to explore more of the world.

    Future Interests



    Inflow Digital Marketing Scholarship
    Throughout my academic and professional journey, I have been driven by a deep-seated passion for storytelling, a thirst for new experiences, and a relentless determination to make a meaningful impact in the marketing industry. As a female Latina, I have always been fascinated by the power of media to shape perceptions and influence culture, which led me to choose marketing as my career path. My goal is to contribute to the magazine or video game sectors, or to establish my own marketing firm, leveraging my unique background and experiences to drive positive change and inspire audiences worldwide. My decision to pursue a career in marketing has been further solidified by my hands-on experiences and academic achievements. As an Ad & PR intern for a student-run news organization on my campus, I actively contributed to managing social media accounts and attended prospecting events to engage with fellow students. These experiences honed my skills in communication and digital marketing, while also instilling in me a deep appreciation for the power of storytelling and audience engagement. Additionally, as an honors student, I have consistently strived for excellence in my academic pursuits, seeking out opportunities to challenge myself and expand my knowledge in the field of marketing. Coming from a rural homeschooled background, I have always been driven by a strong sense of curiosity and a thirst for new experiences. My journey to pursue a career in marketing has been shaped by my desire to break barriers and defy expectations, proving that with determination and hard work, anything is possible. One of the most transformative experiences on my academic journey has been my study abroad experience in London, where I had the opportunity to immerse myself in a global marketing context. This experience not only broadened my perspective on the marketing industry but also reinforced my passion for leveraging marketing strategies to connect with diverse audiences and drive positive change on a global scale. Moreover, I have been deeply inspired by my family, where I have an aunt who owns her own branding company and my mom who runs her own home business out of the house. Their entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to their craft have motivated me to pursue a degree in marketing and follow in their footsteps. Taking after my mother, who has a communication/marketing degree, I am committed to continuing the legacy of entrepreneurship and making a meaningful impact in the marketing industry. In my ideal future role, I envision myself leading a team of talented individuals who are passionate about leveraging marketing strategies to drive positive change and empower underrepresented voices. Whether it's through launching impactful advertising campaigns, fostering collaborations with diverse content creators, or developing immersive brand experiences, I see my company as a catalyst for meaningful storytelling and cultural resonance. Moreover, I am committed to creating a workplace environment that values diversity, equity, and inclusion at its core, actively seeking out talent from underrepresented backgrounds and fostering an inclusive culture where everyone feels valued and empowered to contribute their unique insights and experiences. Overall, my journey to pursue a career in the marketing industry has been characterized by a combination of hands-on experiences, academic achievements, and a relentless pursuit of personal and professional growth. As I continue on this path, I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and am committed to making a meaningful impact in the marketing industry through creativity, innovation, and a steadfast dedication to excellence.
