After graduating from International Community High School in 2016, Rachel Ilardi continued on to Lake Sumter State College to receive her AA. By the time she first stepped into her Ad/PR intro courses, she immediately knew this was the place for her. Originally planning to pursue a career in fundraising, Intro to Public Relations opened her eyes to the possibilities that the PR field holds. Now, Rachel is pursuing a role in traditional PR, although she has yet to find her niche. Rachel enjoys spending time with people, working with youth ministry, and traveling when she can.

Aspen is a lover of all cats, a fresh pine scent enthusiast and a serial rice and bean eater. She was born and raised in Miami Dade County but eagerly relocated to Orlando to begin her college journey at UCF in 2016. The illustrious Ad/PR program quickly became the goal and after acceptance into the limited access program became her home. Aspen’s plan is to have an internship every semester until she graduates to further her growth and career development in the field. When she isn’t on her grind at work, school or her internships—she enjoys skateboarding, traveling and discovering the hidden “foodie” spots around the Orlando area.
