Charity Navigator, GuideStar and Online Ratings – How Does Your Nonprofit Measure Up?

PIRATES Congratulates 2013-2014 Lisa Davidson Memorial Scholarship Recipient Rossini Batino!
Rossini Batino’s career goal is to become a Public Health communication’s professional. She has never given up on herself because she believes that her “career goal has the potential to influence a system of health communication, anywhere in the world.” She also understands “the purpose of this scholarship is to recognize students ‘who have excellent potential for improving lives of people in Southern California through a communications career’.’’ Rossini explains she is “pursuing a career in health communications where communication is the core of effective public health system – that would not only improve the lives of people in Southern California but also anywhere where health is valued.”
Here is how Miss Batino answered the question, discuss your view of the communications industry and its role in today's society?:
“The communication industry is the core of civilization. The communication industry changes rapidly as the society changes and as the technology advances. Mass communication media such as television, radio broadcasting, online communications, public relations, motion pictures and etc; have allowed us to instantly transmit information worldwide. This is a powerful and crucial tool in creating bonds, having our voices heard and most importantly promoting awareness regarding global issues such as social, political, and environmental issues. The communication industry is our external senses that allow us to access information about what’s happening around us. It’s hard to imagine our every daily lives without online communication, for example. Knowing that we are oblivious to the events around us can increase our anxiety and confusion. Globally, imagine the status of international trade without the communication industry – it’s almost improbable! The marketing industry and other business companies heavily depend on the communication industry. WE, as citizens, depend on communication media to keep us inform and alerted. With that said, I believe that communication is what is keeping our society functioning and in order - for that matter - it is the spine of the 21st century.”
Rossini recently transferred from Orange Coast College to attend University of California, Irvine (UCI) as a junior, with a 3.94 grade point average. Her major is Public Health Science with emphasis on Public Health Global Communications. Currently she works for 24 Hour Fitness as a Kids Club Attendant / Service Representative and enjoys the children. She is also a private tutor for a 6-year old with mild ADD. She assists the child with writing, reading, counting and “cool” science experiments. Additionally Rossini is a Clinical Care Extender Intern at Hoag Presbyterian Hospital in Newport Beach. She assists the nurses and patient care assistants in attending to the patient’s needs.
