A first-generation student at USF and a participant in the Corporate Mentor Program, Diana Devitt is on-track to graduate in four years with her degree in marketing.During the last four years, Devitt has participated in three internships while holding a part-time job in customer service at Publix. She currently works as a marketing intern at two companies: Jannus Live and Rent King.
Devitt says that growing up with a sibling with disabilities required her to take on more responsibilities than many of her peers but, she says, this opportunity helped her become more compassionate toward others, helped her understand the importance of being adaptable in difficult situations, and helped foster her passion for community service .
Devitt credits the American Marketing Association at USF with helping her to develop professionally. She has held several leadership roles in the organization, culminating in her position as vice president of event planning. She has participated in several service efforts with the organization, from organizing on-campus awareness events for Big Cat Rescue and the organ donation awareness campaign AMA Saves Lives, to working with Florida Blood Services, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, and the American Cancer Society.
