Daniela McCurdy is currently a Sophomore expected to graduate in May, 2023 majoring in Media Production Arts. She is also minoring in Military Science through the ARMY ROTC program on campus and is currently enlisted in the Army National Guard. Through this path she hopes to become a Public Affairs Officer. Other than academics Daniela is also on our Women’s soccer team. Throughout her extracurriculars and academics she found interest in Phatic Communication. Her research paper was done by looking through peer-reviewed studies as well as creating a survey to help find a reason as to why we use Phatic Communication.
