Why did you decide to come to UW-Eau Claire for college?
I decided to come to UWEC because I loved everything about it! I liked the campus, the size of the school, the College of Business reputation, and above all the atmosphere because here I felt at home and comfortable.
Why did you pick the major you selected?
Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to become a business woman. Both of my parents earned business degrees, so I have been exposed to business my whole life. So, I chose Business Administration for my major. Business Administration has worked well for me as I can minor and take classes in my other area of interest, Kinesiology. Participating in many different sports throughout my life, I have also always taken a great interest in health, fitness, and the human body.
Have you completed an internship?
I have not yet completed an internship as this summer I am studying abroad in Scotland, but I plan on doing an internship next year.
Have you studied abroad?
I have not studied abroad yet, but I will be attending Stirling University in Scotland this summer. I chose Scotland because I hear it’s beautiful there, and the people are very welcoming. I am really looking forward to living in a foreign country.
What does success mean to you? How has UW-Eau Claire College of Business prepared you for success?
Success to me is striving to be the best you can be and always putting your best foot forward. Success is setting goals for yourself and striving to accomplish them. The UWEC College of Business has prepared me for success by creating a positive learning environment with teachers who are always willing to help and pushing you to do your best.
