Student at Kent State University majoring in Integrative Studies
"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." - Jim Rohn
This quote narrated my pathway upon embarking on my college journey in August 2014. I walked onto Kent State's campus with wide eyes and a large tuition bill. Leaving my home, mindset, and high school years behind me, I set out with a passion for learning and mission for improvement. I assured that the five people around me would have this passion and mission, too.
During my first year of college, my days were spent with professors, student leaders, artists, and mentors; my early mornings and late nights spent with Tim Ferris, Seth Godin, Lewis Howes, Jess Lively, and Michael Hyatt; books, podcasts, and blogs became my entertainment.
These influencers led me through the year with an eagerness to push my limits. Changing my major, hosting a student-run television show, interning as a Marketing and Public Relations Assistant at the campus's NPR-affiliated station, holding several student leadership positions, and working on a startup have taught me a lot about myself. Mainly, that I will always continue learning, and never stop improving.
I will be graduating in the Spring of 2017 with a Bachelors of Integrated Studies undergraduate degree in Entrepreneurship, Technology, and English. Entrepreneurship teaches me how to find problems. Technology teaches me how to solve problems. English teaches me how to communicate the problem and solution with others. I've always had a passion for the environment; I plan to use this passion to fuel the identification, implementation, and communication of the current problems faced and solutions needed for the environment.
My passion for learning and mission for improvement are exponential goals. If you, too, have set out to fulfill these goals: let's connect.
