She became a writer and copy-editor for Minero magazine during her first year at UTEP and has since gone on to intern and write for a non-profit online news organization, NOWCastSA.com in the summer of 2020. Additionally, Ruiz at 17 years old interned for Latinitas, an online publication for young Latinxs and is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
