Media Insights Analyst, Gamut & Cox Reps
When did you join the ARF Young Pros? 2019
What is your proudest professional accomplishment?
Being the first generation to graduate in my family, I can say that getting my college degree has been by far my greatest accomplishment. After finishing my undergrad, I got a full-time job at Gamut as an analyst in the media industry and it has been a great experience. Every day I face new challenges, but being open to communicate with teammates and professionals in the field is what has helped me to keep pushing forward.
What is your biggest professional challenge?
As a new professional in the industry I’m enjoying the process of immersing myself on how the industry is evolving. The biggest professional challenge that I face is keeping myself up to date on how rapidly the industry changes.
How has being an ARF Young Pro member impacted your career?
Attending my very first Bootcamp back in January was a great experience. I learned so much from professionals on different panels and had the opportunity to network with other professionals that attended the event. I have always enjoyed connecting with people who can expand my knowledge on the field and the ARF is a great start.
What’s your favorite event that you’ve been to?
ARF Young Pros Bootcamp
When researching a topic you know nothing about, how do you get started?
I start by informing myself on what the public knows and what they are talking about. Then I start searching on sources that I enjoy reading/learning from including different newsletters that I subscribe to. Of course, Google search is another option that can lead me to great sources.
What’s an example of a company/ brand that you think is doing a great job?
I enjoy supporting clothing companies/brands that give back to the community or that support wildlife/environment. Therefore, American Rhino is one of my top list that I would say is doing a great job. The brand supports a Rhino foundation in Kenya and donates 10% of all proceeds to the American Rhino Foundation, over 95% of which funds the conservation effort.
What is your favorite restaurant in the city?
A French restaurant in Manhattan called “Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecote” they only have one meal on their menu! And different desserts.
What is your favorite show/program?
I love to watch TV! But if I had to pick a show to watch for the rest of my life that would be Grey’s Anatomy.
What’s your dream job? (If money was no object, what would you do?)
To travel the world and learn as many languages as possible while teaching others my own language and culture. More like an exchange!
