Michelle Shrader

Busy Blugold graduates with six marketing internships and invaluable experience

Michelle Shrader has always enjoyed being busy, and her experience as a Blugold was no different. But even she was surprised by just how many opportunities were available to her. From studying abroad in Brazil and Portugal to securing six internships, Michelle now has a lot to boast about on her resume. But perhaps one of her most impactful experiences was a chance to work with a startup nonprofit in South America called APACE-Passo Fundo, an organization that works to help blind people feel integrated into their communities.

“I had the chance to completely build their marketing department,” Michelle explained. “I got to create a marketing plan for the organization and then plan organization recognition fundraisers to raise awareness and funds for APACE. This internship has opened my eyes to the startup world, and the dedication and courage it takes to be an entrepreneur — as well as the strengths that I have and what I am capable of. It has pushed me to set goals for myself greater than I had ever imagined before.”

Michelle’s hard work and unique experiences have not only helped her gain lifelong skills and connections but also a full-time job after graduation. Life-changing opportunities can be found here at UW-Eau Claire. What will be yours?
