Vicki Marines

Hi there!

My name is Vicki Marines, and I am 18 years old. This is my first year at the University of Florida; however, I am technically a third-year student. I recently moved to Gainesville from a small town in southern Florida, known as LaBelle. Although it has been a bit difficult, I am starting to see Gainesville as a comforting place to live.

I graduated from LaBelle High School and Edison State College this past spring. While at Edison State College, I earned my Associate's in Arts degree. I haven't always been school oriented, but the urge to enter the journalism field has motivated me to overachieve. I plan to graduate from UF and make a difference in the media world.

I am currently part of the College of Journalism and Communications here at UF. I plan to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in journalism and minor in geography. I chose geography as my minor because I would like to gain knowledge of the different cultures of the world.
