Four CJC Advertising Students Selected for National AAF Multicultural Student Program
Four University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications Advertising students were selected for the national American Advertising Federation (AAF) Most Promising Multicultural Students program. Seniors Lesly Ramirez, Edward Hiraldo, Amanda Churchill and Mayra Yaji will travel to New York City from Feb. 12 to 15 to participate in the program.
The AAF’s Most Promising Multicultural Students program connects the advertising industry with the nation’s top multicultural college seniors. It provides opportunities to recruit fresh talent to further prepare the advertising industry’s best young prospects and to help the advertising and media workforce better reflect the diversity of today’s society. These students will participate in networking, interviewing and industry immersion opportunities with advertising professionals, marketing and media professionals.
The students are also members of UF Ad Society, a professional student advertising organization which recently became an official AAF collegiate chapter.
