What advice would you give to fellow Ambassadors? Take leadership opportunities whether it be a formal Executive position, a delegated position, or just taking ownership in a time where it is needed. Use your strengths to help the organization, let Ambass help you, and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.
Besides Ambassadors organizations are you involved in? International Business Association
If you were on American Idol what song would you chose to sing and why? Short Skirt Long Jacket by Cake because I hit shuffle on iTunes and that was the first song that came up.
What is your favorite Ambassador memory? The 2014 CASE ASAP National Conference in St. Louis. The friends made will be life-long, the memories are priceless, and somehow we all made it back in one piece.
What cereal best describes you as a person? Cinnamon Toast Crunch
What are your plans after graduation? I hope to land a position in Cross-Cultural Management for a domestic company looking to expand overseas. If that can take me back abroad for a few years that would be ideal but I am just looking forward to beginning my career. I also hope to spend a few weeks in June chaperoning a trip to Argentina for a High School program.
What will you take away from Ambassadors? An increased love and passion for my Alma Mater, relationships and memories to last a lifetime, and some of the most valuable skills and experiences I have ever gained.
