What have you learned from AMA?
TU-AMA has vastly widened my experience in every facet of marketing. It has deepened my personal network and professional development. I have learned how to integrate my creativity in a team through case studies and consulting projects. Through my roles as a project manager in TU-AMA's Cherry Consulting, I have strengthened my skills as a leader and communicator when working with peers and clients.
What area of marketing are you most interested in and why?
I have always loved and prioritized travel, so I see international marketing as a bridge to connect my work with my personal goals for adventure. I can envision myself helping many diverse clients through agency work in business consulting or digital marketing. A position in marketing that considers the psychological, financial, and sustainability and ethics of a company and brings them all together is my ideal role.
What is your favorite TU-AMA memory?
My favorite memory from TU-AMA was our final social event last Spring. It was the middle of finals week and everyone was feeling fatigued and stressed. The event was field day, where we were able to let loose, have fun, and partake in rather "serious" competition. We had moved from kickball to capture the flag when it started hailing on us at Geasy Field. We all pushed through the weather and had many laughs to share afterwards.
