This semester, we were thrilled to launch FindSpark Verified, a program for our most involved community members. Our Verified Campus Ambassadors are proudly representing FindSpark on their campuses. Be sure to keep an eye out for them at our upcoming events!
Campus Ambassador: Emily Maldonado
School & Year: CUNY – Lehman College, Class of 2015
Major: Multimedia Journalism- TV & Broadcasting
Tell us a little about yourself!
Emily is a spunky social media enthusiast at the City University of New York, Lehman College. She is majoring in Multimedia Journalism with a concentration in TV & Broadcasting. She thrives for all things “newsworthy,” using her social media platforms to shed light on them. She loves to sing and is constantly on the hunt for new artists and music. Currently she utilizes her time interning with the BronxNet, a local community broadcasting television network covering content within The Bronx Borough.
What part of the campus ambassador program are you looking forward to most?
Being surrounded by young individuals who are driven and are actually putting in the effort to succeed as well as meet and network with incredible individuals who are already making a name for themselves.
What do you love most about your school?
The ambition the students have and the experience the professors have. Being part of the TV & Broadcasting track I see so many of my peers working extremely hard to get either an internship or their dream job to be on television. It’s very competitive but our professors extend the knowledge and secure our confidence with words of wisdom and encouragement.
What’s your favorite social network and why?
Twitter, of course! Twitter is such an amazing outlet because it is a quick, on the go, convenient way to stay connected with the world and the people who live in it!
If you could hear anyone speak at a future Findspark event, who would it be?
Is Kanye West acceptable? **laughs**
If I could hear anyone speak at a future FindSpark event, it would be Oprah Winfrey.
What’s one fun fact about you?
I love pickles!
