member spotlight w/Gina Marchini
My name is Gina Marchini and I’m a first–year Advertising and Graphic Design Major from Davie, Florida. First off, I’m very passionate about art; it provides a way for me to express myself. I love to live my life in a creative way, whether through film, music, or illustration. Concerts have been a huge part of me growing up, there is something about the energy within a crowd that never ceases to amaze me. Service to others is something that I also hold dear to my heart. For the past 3 years, I have volunteered at Flamingo Gardens, a botanical garden and wildlife sanctuary. Here I would donate my time by giving tours and starting a group called Flamingo Gardens Rocks. My goal is to use my artwork for good, so if my art can impact one person positively then that would give me the fire to continue what I do.
