Meet Catia


Segment: The Network

Catia is a PR student at Wayne State University in Detroit, and the new president of it's PRSSA chapter. She is the author of our segment, The Network.

Ambitious by nature, Catia works passionately to achieve her goals. As a future professional, she strives to utilize her leadership and communication skills to contribute to the growth and revival of Detroit, while as a student, she hopes to make it through the day without a nap or nervous breakdown. When she’s not busy being a professional student or contributing to Under PRessure, Catia can be found searching for internships (wink, wink potential employers), online shopping, or formulating a plan to become Derek Hough’s next partner on Dancing With the Stars. Equal parts over-achiever and fangirl, Catia exhibits excitement in all that she does.

In her pursuits to see her academic and professional endeavors to fruition, Catia promises to share her experiences and the lessons she learns along the way.

Meet Maura

Maura and Leo
Segment: Down the Hobbit Hole

Maura is a senior at Michigan State University, studying English. Like our other senior contributors, she is set to graduate in late April/early May. Aside from a full class load, Maura also holds down a job and two internships.

In her (extremely minimal) spare time, she enjoys reading, baking, cooking and napping (a girl's gotta sleep!). Like most 90's kids, she's always down for a Disney sing-along sesh.

While Maura appreciates all great literature, she favorite author is none other than J.R.R. Tolkien (if you're surprised, you clearly didn't read her segment title!). She owns multiple copies of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit, including two illustrated versions.

She is also momma to two kitties: Leonardo DiCatrio, aka Leo, and Fruffles (they are freaking adorable!).

A long-time friend of Jasmine's, Maura hails from the same small northern lower Michigan town and also has gained an appreciation for small-town life since leaving for college.
