Stephanie Pomales

Class of 2019

Hi! My name is Stephanie Pomales and I am a recent high honors graduate from the University of California, Davis, where I majored in Communications and minored in Global & International Studies. During my time at UC Davis, I was placed on the Dean's Honors List three times and won more than $45,000 in scholarships from organizations like The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and The Alliance For Women In Media. I was also chosen for the selective Mentorship in Agriculture, Letters & Sciences program were I was was able to develop my honors thesis on student mental health. One of my research papers was also selected from the prestigious UC Davis Prized Writing Award. My biggest community accomplishments were serving on the Chancellor's Undergraduate Advisory Board and lobbying for increased student funding at the California State Capitol with the UC Student Association. When I wasn't studying, I was interning with NASA in the Department of Virtual Communications through the Virtual Student Foreign Service Program and making strides as the Media & Communications Coordinator for UC Davis Global Affairs. My long term plans are to move to Washington, DC to pursue a career in communications and social media. I'm incredibly excited to be interning with the National Park Service's Office of Communications and Office of International Affairs this summer!
