Giorgia Menetre is an exceptional student who has excelled in both the arts and journalism, showcasing her dedication, versatility, and leadership skills. Her contributions to the University of Arizona and the broader community have been invaluable.
“I feel like I really took advantage of building a community not only within the Fine Arts programs, but just in the university at large,” said Giorgia. “I’m really looking forward to taking the perseverance skills and the communication skills that I have acquired during my time as a student and carrying that onto whatever the future holds for me.
“This is something that I used to tell people when I was a campus tour guide – and something I think every student should keep in mind – but really be open to all of the possibilities, get involved, seek out new experiences. Don’t put yourself in a box. Don’t go into college thinking that you know what you want to do. Stay true to yourself, explore all the possibilities that are here for you. When you become a Wildcat, you become part of a family. You really learn the power of “I am who I am” because of who we are.”
