Hi! My name is Franchesca Ramirez. I’m in my third year at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), where I study New Media Marketing. I was recently transferred from National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), earning my Associate degree in Business. I’ll be graduating in May 2020.
My birthplace was in Chicago, IL and now my hometown is Hammond, IN. I was born deaf and then had surgery for my cochlear implant at four years old. My first language is English and the second is American Sign language (ASL). When I was growing up, I have a chance to experience new things. I have taken a class for photography, Photoshop, iMovie, yearbook, international travel club and learn some web design, 3D animation & picture morphing. I had worked as a Snack Bar cashier/server, teacher aide part- time and a photographer part-time. I have won a contest for my photoshop design to use as the Indiana School for the Deaf advertisement. I did a $20 Business Challenge for my Entrepreneurship course. The challenge was to start a business using $20 out your pocket. I set up ‘Cake Kabob,’ a dessert that has four cake pop in one stick. I did it for one month and made some profit. It was an enjoyable experience to have. My hobbies are many. I like to read, draw, write, crochet, paint, and list goes on.
My objective right now is to obtain a challenging cooperative work experience/internship in a business environment that will allow me to demonstrate my technical, organizational, communication, and leadership skills. Available summer, 2019.
