design is a way of life, a point of view


Danika Garza is a senior Digital Marketing major and Visual Communication Design Minor at St. Mary’s University. Her innate capacity for creation and problem-solving has steered her toward the advertising and communications field, where she aspires to challenge herself and peers to design, assess, and grow.

Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Garza has a passion for giving back to the community she has called home for so long. She has served at many different nonprofit organizations, including Meal On Wheels, Vamos Ya!, Catholic Charities, SA Food Bank, and the Children’s Shelter.

Having consistently held a spot on the Dean’s List since her admission to university, she is a hard worker who balances her full-time studies with two year-round jobs to gain the skills and knowledge for a successful career in the field of advertising.

Garza currently works in the Office of Community Engagement as a student intern at St. Mary’s, where her main focus involves creating marketing materials and managing social media activity for events hosted by the office. She also spends her time at a local nature-based art school, Walden Pond, as an assistant teacher and Birthday Party Coordinator.

After graduating (Spring of 2022), Garza plans to gain professional experience in the field before pursuing a master’s degree in Advertising or Digital Media Design.
