What is the most interesting thing you have done or are planning to do to explore or gain experience in your career field?
I have been able to travel to Chicago twice to meet with various advertising agencies and attend networking events with University of Iowa alumni. I was able to go on these trips through the American Advertising Federation (AAF). I have been a member of AAF for two years and have served on the executive board in two positions, director of public relations and director of social media.
What does being a Bright Scholar mean to you?
The first time I heard Lois Bright’s quote, “We worked hard, saved carefully, invested wisely and gave back when we could,” was at my scholarship award dinner. Ever since, I’ve been trying to incorporate that motto into my daily life. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue my education and be able to graduate debt free. Because I was fortunate enough to be given this amazing scholarship, I am driven to work hard to earn my degree, and I am able to give more of my time, energy, and resources to help make this world a better place.
What has been your biggest accomplishment so far?
My biggest accomplishment has been my work within the fraternity and sorority community. I’ve had opportunities to travel to Indiana and Nebraska, and I’ve gotten to work with other leaders from all over the country. This past year, I was awarded the Fraternity & Sorority Life Individual Sisterhood Award. I also currently serve on the Panhellenic Executive Board as vice president of public relations and marketing.
What’s a fun fact we should know about you?
I have a pet rabbit named Mulan (MuMu).
