Meet the young ladies participating in SheKnows University this semester.
Hi! My name is Cecilia Macris, and I am a senior at Arizona State University studying political science with a minor in communications. I also work part time at Aldo in Scottsdale Fashion Square. All my friends know me as a “girly girl,” but I also enjoy watching sports, except for hockey and golf. In my free time I like to read all the celebrity gossip and catch up on my supernatural television shows.
Hi, my name is Nicole Factor. I am from Chicago and I attend Arizona State University as a communications major. In my free time, I like to take film photographs and explore different places in Arizona. By interning with SheKnows, I hope to learn more about what goes into the making of a successful website, along with gaining experience in a variety of fields such as sales and marketing, public relations and editorial work.
My name is Farrah Wade and I am a senior pursuing journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. Along with writing, I have a passion for dance. Whether it’s teaching classes or dancing for fun, it’s a major part of my life. I have a huge family and we’ve moved around quite a bit! With traveling to so many places, I’ve met amazing people and have had incredible experiences, which have made me who I am today.
Hey, guys! My name is Kristina Fabela. I am a communications major at Arizona State University. I hail from the Bay Area, San Francisco, California — which automatically gives me an unhealthy obsession with the San Francisco Giants. I spend my spare time dabbling in photography and drawing, awkwardly dropping movie quotes in everyday conversation and listening to music of all genres. I hope to one day be working in a field related to TV/radio/online production or any type of media outlet that reaches the masses.
Hi there! My name is Ceirra Smith and I’m a senior at Arizona State University. Come May, I will officially be a college graduate with a BA in English literature and a certificate in writing. I’m a firm believer in second chances and happy dances. I love to bake (chocolate chip cookies are my specialty) and play just about every sport. Most recently, I have taken an interest in paintball. It’s a fun activity that’s sure to leave you with good stories… and a few bruises.
My name is Emily Nicholson and I’m from Colorado Springs, Colorado. I attend Arizona State University and I am a journalism major planning to graduate in 2016. I love cooking, working out, yoga, volleyball, shopping and my cats. I’m obsessed with nutrition documentaries, and I am trying to become vegan.
My name is Joy Findeisen, a 20-year-old junior at Arizona State University studying broadcast journalism. I am passionate about writing, news, politics, beauty and fashion, alternative rock and animals, among other things. I am always looking for new ways to learn and be creative. You can usually find me with a coffee in hand while looking at cat memes or watching makeup tutorials — that is, when I’m not preparing to be a hard-hitting journalist.
I am Natalie Tischler! I grew up in the most outrageous city of Las Vegas. I am double-majoring in political science and broadcast journalism, and I graduate in December. I enjoy anything challenging, whether it’s baking a souffle or doing something as physical as CrossFit or Bikram yoga. The most challenging thing of all, though, is taking care of my 140-pound puppy, who is my pride and joy. Other than that, I love hanging out with friends and taking advantage of everything that comes my way!
Hello, everyone! My name is Chelsea Frisbie and I am a senior at Arizona State University studying communication and English. I grew up in the beautiful state of New York but gladly call Arizona home now. Lately I have been very interested in the deaf culture, nonverbal communication, organic food, organic products and crafting! I love laughing, watching Netflix, shopping and hiking.
