My name is Fernanda, and I’m a Public Relations student at Wayne State University. I was born in Brazil and moved to the United States in 2014. Communications is the way I found to express myself, connect and create strong relationships with people; the creativity involved in it inspires me to become a great professional. I believe that high education is key to improve skills and develop new proficiency in different areas.
As a person who believes in higher education as the key to success, I dedicated my entire life to school and high achievements. I co-founded a club for International Students at Oakland Community College, was a member of Phi Theta Kappa, made to the Dean’s List for two consecutive years and received an outstanding student award. At Wayne State, I’m part of the honors college and was awarded a diversity scholarship for PR students. I also believe that helping others makes you a better person, for that reason I volunteered abroad to teach English to kids in a church in Italy.
I’ve always loved communications and the visual aspect of it, for that reason I dedicated part of my college career to study graphic design and advertising. I currently work as a graphic designer at a startup where I have the opportunity to create and execute awesome projects.
