My name is Trisha Minniti and I am a senior at Florida Gulf Coast University, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication. I am very excited about this internship opportunity at Pushing the Envelope since it gives me a chance to apply what I have learned in my coursework and gain hands on experience in the industry I hope to pursue after graduation. Here’s a little about me…
What about the field of PR/Marketing field excites you?
Many aspects of the public relations and marketing field excites me, one of which is having a wide variety of clients that always keeps work interesting and fresh. I also love how the industry promotes innovation, creativity and keeping up with media trends.
What is your favorite social media channel that you use?
My favorite social media channel that I use is Snapchat. It gives the public a behind-the-scenes look into events all over the world, events that I might never have the chance to see in person. I loved watching New York Fashion week from the front row, even if it was from someone else’s camera lens!
Cats or Dogs?
I am a crazy cat lady. Growing up, I was obsessed with dogs, but after volunteering at a few animal shelters when I got older, I quickly realized I loved cats just as much! I even have an Instagram account for my kitten.
Are you involved in any community organizations? If so, why are you passionate about their cause?
I volunteer at Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Naples, which is a non-profit organization that provides a home to exotic, stray and injured animals. I am passionate about Shy Wolf’s cause because I am an animal lover, and cherish having the ability to make an impact on each animal’s life.
What is your dream travel location?
Sydney, Australia is at the top of my list. I’ve heard the beaches are wonderful, and would love to see their unique wildlife and hold a koala!
