Meet the Newest WVU Marketing Communications Brand Ambassadors

Meet the newest Marketing Communications Brand Ambassadors

A brand ambassador is typically thought of as a "spokesperson" for brand, product or organization. The insight that the individual might be paid implies their recommendations and reviews are inauthentic and untrustworthy. However — that is not the case of all brand ambassadors.

Brand ambassadors can be individuals who authentically promote a brand, product or organization because of their genuine passion, admiration or desire to share their opinions on it. The individual will share recommendations or products, goods or services, share events hosted by brands and receive exclusive perks and recognition in return.

WVU Marketing Marketing Communications has officially selected its second group of brand ambassadors for the 2020/2021 academic year! This group includes highly engaged alumni and current students who have exceptional achievements in their academic and professional career.

Learn more about our brand ambassadors below and consider applying for the program today.

Nicole AndinoNicole Andino

Integrated Marketing Communications (Current Student)
Orlando, FL
Current Job Title: Visual Marketing Graduate Assistant

Career Aspirations: After college, I hope to pursue my dream of working for an international agency and traveling around the world. I have worked accounts with international clients to provide creative insight to improve their relations. One day I hope to work in an agency dedicated to partnering with clients globally. I believe this dream will diversify my skills and network in the future.
Interests: My hobbies include photography and marketing for small businesses and clients. I find happiness in providing creative insight to bring solutions to businesses and clients in need. Especially due to the COVID-19 virus, many businesses have closed. I have found enjoyment in providing assistance to improve online communication with their audience. For the 2020-2021 school year, I will be the president of the WVU Media Coalition to work with outreach for all independent and dependent student organizations under the Reed College of Media. I will continue as the Digital Media Director for WVU PRSSA, return as the Event Planning Chair for TEDxWVU, and be a part of the Media Team for the Mountaineer Maniacs.
