What inspired you to pick your current major?
I knew I wanted to major in something related to business, and I liked that marketing can be both strategic and creative. I changed my major a couple times before I chose marketing. Once I started my marketing classes, I knew I had found the right major.
How has being in the ARF WIDE Program affected your career path or university studies?
It was an honor to be a part of the ARF WIDE Program. Attending ARF events with my Young Pro Coach sparked my interest in research, which lead me to where I am today!
