Success Stories

Michelle Regna

“The most important thing I learned at Ramapo was how to get in touch with my creativity. My professors were always pushing me to go further, to think harder. After graduation, it wasn’t easy finding work. But with an on campus job at CSI Design and an internship at Cosmopolitan on my resume, I eventually was hired full time at People magazine in January ’14. It wasn’t long before I realized that I wasn’t using the creativity that I had just spent the last four years fostering. But I persevered and continued to work towards my real dream of working at BuzzFeed, a place where creativity is embraced to the fullest. Last month that dream came true when I left People and started as an Editorial Fellow at BuzzFeed. It truly is everything I dreamt of and more, and I feel incredibly blessed to be there. I’m proud of my journey and thankful for all the people who helped me get there.” – Michelle Regna ’13 graduated with a degree in Communication Arts with a concentration in Visual Communication Design.
