Why Promotions?

Promotions really excited me because it offers an incredible way to ignite your creativity while also working on a very complex and strategy-based question. As a Comm student, I genuinely enjoy being in a classroom with such talented people from all different kinds of majors.

Career aspiration?

I would love to either work for a competitive brand consulting agency where I get to utilize both my creative and analytical skills. However, an absolute dream of mine would be to work for a major venue, like Madison Square Garden, and contribute to their marketing efforts for all kinds of events. I love both sports and music, so finding a way to fit both of those in there would be phenomenal.
