Major: Media Studies
Hometown: San Fernando Valley
Hey ya’ll it's Jessenia! I am a first generation Mexicana who was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. I am currently a Junior majoring in Media Studies with an emphasis in Marketing and minoring in Gender and Women’s Studies. I am so excited to be this year’s LBSA President and I look forward to meeting you all! Coming in as a freshman, it was important for me to join an organization like LBSA where I could get involved, gain exposure, and be able to grow personally and professionally. LBSA has opened doors to not only a professional network and resources but has given me a familia, truly my home away from home! As a result of the opportunities and strong network that LBSA offers, I have had the opportunity to intern at a start-up, non-profit, and most recently at Ernst & Young as a Launch Intern. I initially joined LBSA Fall 2019 as a committee intern, and to this day I have served three LBSA board positions. The leadership experience that I have gained throughout these past few years have exposed me to valuable experiences that would have not been possible without the support of LBSA.
A piece of advice that I would like to share is to get involved and explore your interests. Once you do so, you will begin to discover what it is that you want in a career. I continue to be on that journey, exploring my career interests and passions. Currently, I am interested in marketing for CPG and retail companies, so I look forward in continuing to explore! LBSA board is here to provide the necessary support, network, and resources to help you reach your goals! We are here for you <3 Please feel free to reach out to chat, ask questions, or share any opportunities!
