  • Pursuing Bachelor of Science in Advertising at University of Texas at Austin

Experience: Mariangela is a second-year student at the University of Texas at Austin. She is pursuing a B.S. in Advertising at the Stan Richards school. On campus, she is involved in a service organization called Habitat for Humanity where students raise awareness about the effects of gentrification and help build affordable homes that are eco-friendly. Mariangela interned at a non-profit organization, Brownsville Wellness Coalition, in 2017 in the social media department. She has also interned at a small jewelry business, Oliv & Frankie, for two years in the media and marketing department.

What I love about GEN: I like being part of the team that serves young girls, helps them appreciate themselves, and recognize that they are more incredible than they may know. I love every part of GEN’s mission and how it is a strong catalyst for change. Igniting the power in young girls is as important as learning chemistry or history. The future is dependent on the strong women that believe in themselves, others, and in the capability for the world to be better. And GEN is a big part in that.
