Vivian Nunez, a junior who is a journalism minor and marketing major, is one of the select few to receive a 2013 New York Women in Communications Foundation scholarship. The award will be presented at the 2013 Matrix AWARDS -- Women Who Change the World Dinner on April 22.

Nunez recently wrote us:

"I fell into journalism after transferring to Baruch during my sophomore year and ever since I've realized this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I've always liked to write, but up until I took my first journalism class [Feature Article Writing with Prof. Roslyn Bernstein], I didn't really think I could make a career out of it. Then I met people who were thriving in the industry and realized I could be one of them. I plan on pursuing a career in magazine journalism, with a focus on features and entertainment, after I graduate in May 2014. 

“My passion for writing, magazines and media is what led me to apply for a New York Women In Communications scholarship. After attending their Student Career Conference, I knew I wanted to belong to this amazing network of women which is why I couldn't have been happier when I got a call informing me I won the NYWICI Hearst Scholarship--an award that includes a scholarship as well as an internship at a Hearst publication.

“Deciding to minor in journalism tops the list as the best decision I've ever made."
