Gabriella is a News and Media intern at IU Communications. In this role, she pitches and creates news stories for all Indiana University students, faculty, staff, alumni, and external media, including news releases, feature stories, and news briefs. Gabriella also works with social media, photo/videos, and varying marketing channels to further supplement her writing.

Aside from her involvement with IU Communications, Gabriella has been a part of many different organizations on campus, including IUSTV, RPS, The Media School Ambassadors Program, and the Luminaries Program. Outside of school, she has worked at several different agencies and organizations. This past summer, she was a marketing intern at a nonprofit organization in Princeton, New Jersey, where she managed social media campaigns, organized projects and events, and edited website content.

Gabriella is a senior at Indiana University pursuing her bachelor’s degree in media advertising and event management. When she is not at work or in class, she enjoys painting, traveling, hiking, and spending time with her friends and family.

For me, the most gratifying experience is when I am able to implement an idea and watch it make progress. I love finding creative ways to either improve a situation or solve a problem. I find this thinking process to be so exhilarating.
