This season brought Schifino Lee an international mix of interns with energy and initiative that livened up both the account and creative sides of the agency. Thanks to their funky flair and worldly creative perspectives, our clients were treated to some truly inspiring work.
Cristina Albers | Design Intern
Cristina lives for seeing the world and meeting new people. Born in Venezuela, she’s graced the University of Tampa with her wit and wisdom as an international student. A double major in Advertising & Public Relations, plus Graphic Design, she brings a keen artistic eye to Schifino Lee clients like Alessi and the Tampa Museum of Art. Looking towards the future, Cristina hopes to complete her master’s degree in global branding and communications in the distant land of Germany.
Lale Perez | Design Intern
After leaving friends and family behind in Venezuela, Lale embarked on the biggest adventure of her life and hopped on a plane to Florida. Excited to soak in a brand-new culture, she enrolled at the University of Tampa to pursue a degree in Advertising & Public Relations with a minor in Communications. At Schifino Lee, Lale has lent her artistic ability to the Tampa Museum of Art and Suncoast Team Services, among others. Down the road, Lale hopes to travel the world, creating buzz-worthy content for non-profit organizations globally.
Tristin Izzo | Account Service Intern
Tristin is a real go-getter when it comes to getting what she wants. Rounding out her senior year, Tristin is an Advertising & Public Relations and Interpersonal Communications major with a minor in Business and Integrated Marketing. Woah. Triple threat. She has a knack for understanding companies and has contributed to our work for Tampa Museum of Art and California Tacos during her time here. Post graduation, she’s determined to book a one-way ticket to England and find a great agency to work for.
Nicole Germany | Writing Intern
A little spicy and a little sweet, Nicole takes every writing assignment on as her next big adventure. After receiving a B.S. in Journalism and Communications, she was eager to take on a new roll – helping brand awesome companies. During her time interning, Nicole has worked with Vology and P&S Transportation, among many others. Her proudest moment was the first time she saw her byline in print. And yes, she framed it. Ultimately, Nicole hopes to land a job that gives her the opportunity to brand and manage social media for new and blossoming companies.
Jose Lazarte | Design Intern
Jose received his degree in Advertising Design from Ringling College of Art and Design. With his avid attention to detail, he has crafted graphics for Alessi, Vology and the agency’s own social media efforts. Beyond his design skills, Jose is pretty decent at hitting a tennis ball, having won first place in the regionals tennis tournament in Peru! One day he hopes to live abroad in Rome and immerse himself in the city’s beautiful culture and delectable food.
As their tenure at Schifino Lee wraps up, the winter wind is taking them to their next big challenge. Their contributions have been invaluable and we wish them the best with what’s to come.
