My name is Emma Rizzo and I am currently a student at Ithaca College, originally from Rochester, New York. I am currently a journalism major and I am working toward a minor in Spanish. I am looking to use my time in the Park School to learn about the different opportunities that are available in the communications industry, as well as where the industry is headed in the future.
I am deeply inspired by the story-telling aspect of journalism. I believe that stories have the power to connect with people. In the future, I am planning on following my passion to make a difference in the world. After graduating from Ithaca College, I would like to use everything I have learned to work towards something greater than myself. I am highly interested in independent media and non-profit work, and I am planning to pursue these fields as possible careers.
