By BIC CCNY Posted on 03/06/2022 10:00

Amy Perez will be joining TBWA\WorldHealth as a Strategist and Lisandra de la Paz has been selected by Droga5 to join their strategy department…

The highly selective Multicultural Advertising Internship Program (MAIP) from the 4A's gives students the opportunity to work at prestigious advertising and public relations agencies on various accounts, interact with industry professionals on a day-to-day basis, and gain valuable professional credentials. This year, two bright BICsters, Amy Perez and Lisandra de la Paz, have been chosen as the 4A's MAIP Fellows.

Meet Amy Perez  >>
Born in Ecuador with a BA in TV and Radio Production from Brooklyn College, Amy Perez is a second-year BICster who wears many hats. She has been working as a Supplemental Instructor at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, where she's helped many students develop television productions and multimedia exhibitions. She's also putting her strategic and comms knowledge into practice at the City College of New York as a Communication Associate for the Leadership for Democracy and Social Justice, a proposed initiative of the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership at City College of New York and the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies. Amy is eager to continue to expand her strategic skills and be able to help people like her get into the awesome world of advertising. Amy has been selected to intern this summer at TBWA\WorldHealth as a strategist. 

Meet Lisandra de la Paz >>

With a degree in Journalism from the University of Havana, Lisandra de la Paz’s interest in branding “stems from a need for transformation.” The second-year BICster comes with experience as a digital content producer at Univision Communications. Previously, Lisandra worked as a reporter for Juventud Tecnica magazine, where she published Relatos de una Ciudad en Sepia –a series of stories that led the government to grant houses to poor families. Throughout her time at BIC, Lisandra has discovered her passion for strategy, “the perfect excuse to do what I love the most: finding innovative solutions and ideas that spark positive change.” Lisa has been chosen to be part of the strategy department at Droga5. 

In addition to earning paid internships at major agencies throughout the country, MAIP fellows participate in virtual professional development opportunities. Formal orientation happens in host cities in late May. Internships begin June 1st and continue throughout the summer. However, becoming part of the MAIP network adds value throughout their career. 

Amy and Lisa are now a part of this prestigious network which includes BIC alumni Ping Sun, Roxie Xie, Chris Villanueva, Ivan Ramirez, Sean Feol-Baugh, Surabhi Govindarajan, and Melissa Julien

Big BIC Brava Amy and Lisa!! We’re so excited to watch your MAIP journey and see where it takes you.
