Confidence is Key
Mary O’Hara is a 21-year-old student from Huntingtown, Maryland. She studies international politics as a major and has minors in information sciences and technology, SRA and German. Despite having a busy academic schedule, O’Hara still makes the time for her passion, modeling.
O’Hara currates her modeling career on Instagram and has her friends take photos of her while she is on campus. On her breaks from school she is frequently working with photographers from D.C. and Philadelphia. She has amassed over 1,000 followers on social media since her sophomore year at Penn State and she says it keeps growing.
“It’s something I love doing and I think people like it,” she said. “I would do it if I had 3 followers or three-million.”

Senior / Journalism
My name is Shannon and I am senior at Penn State University’s University Park campus. I am currently studying broadcast journalism with an interest in entertainment reporting and editorial writing.
I am currently interning with NBC Universal as Penn State’s campus representative which allows me to promote NBC Universal movies and television shows on campus. I previously worked as a contributing editor with TigerBeat Magazine where I published articles daily and interview celebrities. I also spent time working in New York City at Oath, a Verizon subsidiary, where I focused on internal communications and marketing. Along with my internship experience, I am involved in many academic clubs across campus such as Ed2010, THON and ComRadio.
