GMercyU alum AnaLee Rodriguez at 2014 NBA Draft

Meet AnaLee Rodriguez

Communication, 2015

“As a freshman, I was a really shy person but always had the will to try something new to better myself. Now, I am an outgoing leader who does not shy away from challenges.”

My GMercyU Experience

Looking back on my accomplishments at GMercyU, you’d never know how shy I was my freshman year. I pushed myself to step out of my comfort zone and it paid off. I got involveded on campus: as a Resident Assistant, Editor-in-Chief of the Gwynmercian, Co-President of Sigma Phi Sigma, and member of the track and field team. I even beat the University’s four-year-old shot put record!

Off campus, I incorporated my passion for creative design into my internships at ESPN’s 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia; the Trenton Thunder, the AAA Affiliate of the New York Yankees; and –my favorite internship of all – at the NBA front offices in New York City! 

I graduated in 2015 with my bachelor’s degree in communication, and am looking forward to the next chapter of my life, which will take me to Disney World. I’ll work as a photographer at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports and as the Director of Sports specializing in basketball and racquetball league operations at L.A. Fitness.
