Favorite Artists

I love all types of music and lots of different artists. Since I am so far from home, listening to music in Spanish helps me beat homesickness. Some of my favorites are J Balvin and Daddy Yankee. I also love The Weeknd and G-Dragon.

Bio

Hello! My name is Damita M. Menezes. I am currently a 19 year old international sophomore studying Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Digital Cinema. I am an Indian, born and brought in Dubai, UAE. Besides being the News Director for Radio DePaul, I am also the Marketing Specialist for DePaul’s Finance Department. I enjoy indie folk, music from the 80s and guitar flamenco. I love me some Thai food and sushi, anytime anywhere. If you don't find me reading, writing, editing or emailing someone, I'll be taking pictures of Chicago for my socials.
