A member of the Beta Gamma Sigma International Honor Society and repeated Dean’s List scholar, Christina Jena maintains her scholastic accomplishments.  She does so while balancing a part-time job, internship, and leadership role in the American Marketing Association.  Starting as an active member, Jena was elected as vice president of regional conference.  Under her leadership, she organized, planned, and promoted the annual conference, which was attended by more than 160 people. The revenue from the event surpassed the organization’s profit goal.

A leader outside of campus, Jena participates in Marketers Advocating Reading and Knowledge, a program that makes books available to children in the Tampa Bay community.  She also participates in beach clean-up events and Relay for Life.

After holding internships at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo and Tampa Bay Technology Forum, Jena is currently a marketing intern at DocuSource Visual Communications, a position which will transition into a full-time job upon graduation.
