Career goal: Experiential Marketing

Best IU experience so far: Working with high school students through the Young Women’s Institute, an introductory business program I attended in 2008 where my passion for business first formed.

One thing I want to do before I leave Bloomington/campus: Fourth Street Fridays: Try a different ethnic restaurant of Fourth Street each Friday to experience the rich culture Bloomington boasts (and spend time with friends!).

Greatest life lesson: You get what you ask for—don’t hesitate to reach out to the right people and ask for what you truly want. If you don’t ask, you more than likely will not receive.

Favorite class at IU and why: M344: Creativity and Communication—While I am not ‘artistically’ talented, M344 allowed me to find a way to express myself creatively through Adobe software programs. I discovered how much I enjoy design and was able to apply my skills to aid real-world clients.

Something I’m really passionate about: Alternative Breaks! I have been on 5 alternative break trips working with social issues including Children, Education, and Rural Poverty. What a great way to learn about social issues, meet new friends, travel the world, and create active citizens in the business school and across campus.

Something that would surprise people about me or a fun fact: I grew up on a tree farm in the limestone capital of the world, also home to 3 US astronauts, only 30 minutes south of Bloomington.
