My name is Nik Montoya and I am a third year New Media Marketing and Management double major at Rochester Institute of Technology. I am in my third year of classes and have a minor in advertising and public relations.
Coming out of high school I had very little idea of what I wanted to do with my life. In fact, the reason I came to RIT was because of a friend’s suggestion to apply. After receiving my acceptance letter and doing research about the school I found that it would be a great opportunity for me to progress academically and started my first year at RIT.
During my time at RIT I have enjoyed a variety of challenges for both my majors however, some of the work that I’m most proud of includes working with a few other classmates to organize a charity event for an organization called Alyssa’s Angels, in which we raised more money than they had ever received in the organization’s history of that charity event. It felt amazing to put together the event and have it be so successful, and that feeling of fulfillment is something I strive to put into the work I conduct.
I plan on becoming a graduate student through RIT’s 4+1 program and finishing my days of study at RIT in 5 years. I want to focus more on the managing and social media aspects of marketing as these are what interest me most. My future goal is to simply enjoy wherever I work in the future. I believe that working somewhere that aligns with my interests will lead me to be a more productive worker and an overall happier person.
