Ms. Katy Steeves was born on March 21st in Alabama, where she spent the majority of her childhood, until 2005 when she and her family moved to Bradenton, Fl. Katy graduated from Manatee High School in 2007, and she began her journey as a University of South Florida Bull that fall. Katy stepped right in and began to leave her impact on USF’s campus as a member of the 2008 Orientation Team. Directly proceeding the summer as an OTL, Katy furthered her interest in Orientation as a student assistant in the Office. Katy worked in the office for two (2) years from August 2008-August 2010, where she gained a variety of both personal and professional experience.
Katy is now a senior, whose expected graduation is Spring 2011. As a Magazine Journalist major, Katy finds interest in magazines such as Cosmo and Allure; whose content generally focuses on fashion, and makeup. Katy has had the opportunity to participate in two internships that correspond with her major. Last Fall (Fall 2010), Katy had an internship with the fashion designer Kimberly Hendricks, where she was involved with graphic design and promotions. This semester (Spring 2011), Katy has an internship with Creative Lofting, which is a local newspaper/magazine. Both internships are great experiences and portfolio builders. Besides Katy’s interest in both Orientation and Magazine Journalism, she also works at Michael’s (along with Jasmine Hollis, 2010 OTL) and she participated in Campus Crusade for two (2) years.
*A Fun Fact*
As the youngest of three (3) children, Katy is clearly the one with the brains in the family because she choose to be a *BULL*, while her sister sided with the *SEMINOLES*, and her brother settled for the *GATORS* Katy we are glad you made the right decision.
