What did you want to be when you grew up (when you were little)? In high school? Now what do you want to be?
I wanted to be a lawyer when I was a kid. When I was in high school, I wanted to go into business, but I didn’t know what. Now, I’m still not set on one specific thing. I am applying to jobs in both HR and in sales.
Favorite Food: My favorite food is Thai food
I work part time at my internship, I volunteer every other week at Kids Food Basket, and I am a part of the student chapter of the Society of HR Management
Favorite event from and/or thing about DSP:
My favorite thing about DSP is that you get to socialize with other likeminded individuals while still working on your professionalism. My favorite event that we have had thus far was the Groupon Tour in Chicago because we got to tour an amazing headquarters and afterward, we went out to lunch and we were able to explore the city.
Favorite thing about Grand Valley:
I love the ravines in Allendale! Hammocking and exploring in the spring and summer have been some of my favorite memories at GV.
Why did you join DSP?
I joined because I was looking for a group of friends in the business school, most of my friends were in the sciences and I wanted to meet people I may share classes with.
Why did you choose Grand Valley?
I transferred into GV after my first semester at college. I wanted to move to a medium sized school where I knew I wouldn’t be just a number in my classes.
Where do you want to be in 10 years?
I want to be successful in my career, whatever that may be.
