Hello! My name is Cecilia Commero and I am currently a student at Saint Joseph’s University studying marketing with a minor in graphic design. I have worked in the restaurant industry in front-of-house roles for 6 years in upscale casual, high-volume establishments.
Through these roles, I have gained organizational skills and learned how to lead a team by communicating what to do to efficiently achieve a common goal through various front-of-house roles.
On my campus, I am an active member of Alpha Kappa Psi which has helped me grow as a professional, and I will be serving on the executive board as VP of Marketing in the 2024-25 academic year.

Because of my interests and experience, I am very flexible, and teachable and can use my creativity and soft skills to help a team excel. In my future career, I hope to hold a creative marketing role in either the entertainment or fashion industry. It is important to make sure to hold space for yourself to express creativity and promote curiosity. I believe that these roles will help me to fulfill both my interest in the marketing field as well as my passions for creating and problem-solving. I value a variable schedule and the ability to express my opinions to help better a situation, and I think I will be able to effectively express my skill set in a career in these fields.
Marketing is a diverse field that heavily values representation to create successful campaigns. In my career, I hope to contribute to a higher standard for equal representation in the media.

Diner Menu

A sample menu of a make believe restaurant called Rosie's Diner. The menu features breakfast, lunch, and dinner items that are commonly found in a diner style restaurant. the background of the menu is blakc and white checkered, and the text on the menu is red with yellow accents. a pdf of the menu is also attatched for you to douwnload to hear individual menu items if you are interested.

This is a menu I created for my graphic design class. We were to make up a restaurant, create a logo/brand image, and make a menu.
I chose a 50's diner theme and created a menu in the format of a placemat you would find on a table at a diner.

In November of 2022, I became a member of Alpha Kappa Psi, Chi Delta at Saint Joseph's University. I not only gained a wonderful community of people on my campus, but also grew exponetially as an individual both personally and professionally. I have learned many skills to help me in my future career such as resume building, networking, and public speaking.
For the 2024-2025 academic year, I have been elected as the Vice President of Marketing where I will be responsible for running our chapter's social media. I am looking forward to using my experience in marketing and graphic design to boost our social media presence and benefit the organization.

୨୧ Hobbies ୨୧

Shopping Second Hand

When curating my personal style, I love shopping second hand to find unique pieces. Not only is it cost efficient when wanting to try new trends or styles, but it is also good for the environment. Textile waste is a huge probelm in fast fashion since clothing can be diposed of just as fast as it is made to fit fleeting trends. 85% of all textiles end up in landfills , so I try to do my part by thrifting or second hand shopping online.

Upcycling Clothing and Materials

Along with second hand shopping, I also love to create my own clothes through sewing and upcycling. Typically, I shop for fabrics and supplies at a second hand craft store called Art of Recycle in my hometown. Upcycling is taking things that are old and doing something new with them. If I find something second hand that doesn't fit right or needs a little sprucing up to fit my personal style, I love to give these pieces a new life in my closet.

I love trying new types of cuisine. My family is Italian, so I am partial to my mom's baked ziti and chicken cutlets.
Some of my favorite types of food are Asian cusines, specifically Korean and Vietnamese. I also really enjoy Mediterranean food!
