 We’re excited to introduce the 2019 digital marketing interns for ASU Adulting 101. These students will be with you throughout the semester to help you navigate life as a college student. They’re ASU students just like you, who know the student experience inside and out because ... they’re living it! Check out their bios below and let us know what you’d like them to cover. Then, follow us on Instagram to keep up with their college journeys and wise advice.


Joe Davis

My name is Joe Davis, and I’m a graphic design student on the Tempe campus. This is my second year at ASU and I couldn’t be more excited. I love to paint and draw, hang out with friends, watch YouTube, and explore new places!

Must-have item for fall: My skateboard. It makes it so much faster to get around and I recommend everyone brings some wheels with them. Just watch out for walk-only zones!


Mariela Lozano Porraz

My name is Mariela Lozano Porras and I’m a sophomore majoring in marketing on the Tempe campus. I like to share tips and advice about being a student on my YouTube channel and on my personal blog — I also have a photography side hustle and am interested in graphic design.

Why I’m excited to be an intern with Adulting 101: So I can post content that allows students to grow personally, professionally and academically. 


Natalie Urquiza

My name is Natalie Urquiza, and I’m a senior majoring in sports journalism and minoring in journalism and communication. I’m a transfer student and also work part time in retail. My dream job is to cover Major League Baseball! 

Why did you want to become a Sun Devil? My older brother went to ASU and had a great experience — it made me want to be a Sun Devil too!


Adulting 101

Sun Devils turn to ASU Adulting 101 to learn (some of) the things not taught in class. Not sure about how to do something? Need to connect with an expert? We got you.
