Hello! My name is Anna Pankiewicz. I’m a senior at the University of Kansas pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Journalism with an emphasis in Strategic Communication at the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications. I’m complementing my major with minors in Spanish and Business.
At KU, I have enjoyed being involved on campus and in my community. Currently, I am working at the University of Kansas School of Business as a communications intern. Previously, I worked as an intern for the Marketing and Fan Experience department of Kansas Athletics, and I served as the Marketing Chair on the St. Lawrence Catholic Campus Center’s Student Ministry Council. Outside of KU, I was a game day intern for FC Kansas City during the 2016 season, and most recently, I worked as the Marketing Intern at the Greater Kansas City Sports Commission & Foundation and WIN for KC.
In January of 2016, I had the opportunity to abroad in Cuba for 10 days. I enjoyed conversing in Spanish with the locals and drinking great coffee. I’m a history nerd, so learning about Cuba’s past and the current culture was fascinating; but ultimately, as an avid sports fan, my favorite activity in Cuba was attending a baseball game.
