I'm a strategic communications student with an interest in advertising and graphic design. To me, the most valuable part of my academic and professional work is the process that comes before the finished product. From writing press releases to building email newsletters, every project that I've worked on has helped me to approach future assignments with creativity and flexibility. I'm persistent, resourceful and I always want to learn more. This leads me to seek out new experiences that may not "fit" my major or my area of expertise in order to challenge and create opportunities for myself. By doing this, I've encountered a variety of perspectives and am able to consistently bring fresh ideas to the table.

Now days away from Tego's official release on Friday, Rucci still hasn't lost sight of her goal.
