Spring 2019 Winners

Giselle Hernandez

Giselle Hernandez is a senior at Rutgers University, majoring in Journalism and Media studies with a specialization in Sports, and a minor in Gender and Media. While at Rutgers, Giselle became a member of the Center for Latino Arts and Culture, as well as the National Women’s Gender Studies Honor Society: Triota. The Perth Amboy, NJ native is set to graduate in May 2020, and plans to continue her education in Nursing. Her dream is to ultimately earn a Doctor of Nursing Practice, with a specialization in Neurology and work with individuals with Neurological disorders, as well as aid in CTE research. She is an avid fan of sports; specifically the NBA and MLB. When she is not working or studying, Giselle enjoys watching and Tweeting about the sports media environment. Giselle’s overall goal is to use her degrees in both Journalism and Nursing to make a difference, and help others understand that it is possible to take two completely different fields of work and do what you love.

“Having the opportunity to work on such an immersive and extensive project was a once in a lifetime experience that showed me how I could use what I’ve learned in the classroom and apply it to opportunities outside of it.”

“Thank you to Fox Sports, FS1 and the NBA for a thrilling and open experience.”

“My favorite part about the project was being able to collaboratively use our own creative input and outlets in order to present the team with ideas they could use extensively to market any event or show.”
