Biography of Isabella Pico

For the past four years I have been a student at the University of Florida in the college of Journalism and Communications. I will be graduating in May with a Bachelor’s degree in telecommunications with a specialization in news.

Gainesville Explorer is one way I have on expanding my communications skills. By researching and visiting different locations I want to show that I am interested in traveling to places and learning. As a telecommunications major, I am hoping to find a career in communications.

At UF, I have been in several positions and organizations to reach this goal. As a multimedia journalist for WUFT News, I found and reported on stories in the local listening area for t.v and radio. I am also a host, and the producer, for the ChomPics podcast Art Things Considered, which focuses on all the latest gaming, theatre, movie, and TV news.  In addition I am the Public Relations officer of the UF Equestrian Club. In this position I run all the social media pages, such as Facebook and Instagram, and I completely reformatted the club’s website.

In my different jobs and internships I have gained many skills in media. Already I have interned for iHeartMedia, and the Conservation Trust for Florida. In addition, I am currently a studio technician at the UF Center for Instructional Technology and Training recording and editing videos for UF’s online courses.

Therefore, I appreciate you writing about your Gainesville explorations because it helps me add and cross off some items on my graduate bucket list. Keep up the good work!
