Student Spotlight: Miranda Ribeiro-Vecino

June 10, 2019

Meet Miranda Ribeiro-Vecino! A rising senior at Penn and Philadelphia native, Miranda is working at the Arthur Ross Gallery as the gallery’s summer intern! On campus, Miranda is majoring in fine arts and philosophy; two disciplines that she says go “hand-in-hand” in her creative endeavors. Outside of her studies, she has worked at the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts as a special collections assistant where she handled rare texts and manuscripts hundreds of years old, and as the scholarship director of Penn for Immigrant Rights, a student-run immigrant advocacy group.
She also served as the station manager of WQHS Radio, Penn’s student radio station, where she chaired its Board of Directors. She also hosted her own weekly radio show where she and her co-host talked about contemporary topics like women’s issues and politics and shared the world their old, high-school playlists. During these warm summer months, Miranda is looking forward to listening to music new and old, catching up on her summer reading, practicing yoga, and visiting the Whitney Biennial.
