Study Abroad - Cannes Lions Advertising Festival
I am fascinated with the integration of art and business. In order to nurture and grow my creative storytelling nature, I taught myself how to use Adobe CC Suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I also took on photography using a Canon EOS Rebel T3i. I am currently majoring in Advertising, minoring in Women Studies, and completing a certificate in New Media. As a college student, I involve myself in several campus activities, such as community/volunteer service, and international organizations. I volunteer my time as the Promotional Strategy Coordinator for University Union, promoting diversity and inclusiveness on campus using my advertising skills. I am also the Social Media and Communication Strategy Intern for The Cottage, Sexual Assault Center and Children's Advocacy Center, where I spread awareness about sexual assault and the services the nonprofit provides for victims. By putting myself in unfamiliar situations, I push my own personal growth to its limits. I am always searching for ways to improve my communication skills and understanding of the advertising industry, and I believe this study abroad program is necessary for me to further my knowledge. Help me follow my dreams and help me fund my first-ever study abroad trip to Cannes Lions Advertising Festival, an opportunity to grow as an individual and network with amazing professionals in the field.
