My name is Serena Rivera and I am a freshman at Northern Virginia Community College. My major is Communications with a concentration in Political Science and Journalism. I am excited to attend this One-Day Immersion and learn more about media, journalism, public relations and marketing first hand. Hands-on experiences like this help me gain a much broader knowledge top 5% of Sales Associates nationwide. I am active in LGBT advocacy and have discussed these issues with Congressional staff and members of the media. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I am deeply grateful to Dolly Wolf, Pace University and the entire NVCC team for making it possible for me to attend this event.
