Hello I am Direne, a Senior, an Educator, a Volunteer Ambassador, and a Cancer Society Advocate. My friends and family like to affectionately call me Lady Di. My major is Journalism and I became interested in Media Studies in the 6th grade when I was cast as a reporter in an educational play for elementary schools that was taped in a Newark, New Jersey Courthouse. I knew I could do anything in Media because I was never afraid to talk to anyone, go anywhere and I would deliver the message to you swiftly and accurately! As a Cancer Survivor, I have been strengthened and motivated to be a voice for others. I love doing research on topics that impact women and urban communities in America.
I hold a degree in Public Relations and my academic and professtonal goal is to obtain a B.A. degree in Journalism and become a Publicist or start a non-profit organization. My life's humanitarian work is inspired by many, but a special quote that I really like is from an actor, Louis Mann, who said..."What happens to a man is less significant than What happens within him."
