What do you like most about the AMA?

The hands-on marketing experience and the AMA-zing people I met.  Through this organization I have made friendships that will last a lifetime.  The people you meet and the experiences you get are something you can't find anywhere else.  Not joining when I first came to UMD was a mistake.  I'm so glad I joined!

What are some of your hobbies, interests and career goals?

Soccer and Liverpool FC.  My career goals are to work in marketing and maybe in the near future become a physical therapist.  They are very different career paths, but I am living in the moment.   

How do you think your experience on E-Board and being a member of AMA has prepared you for your professional career?

 

Definitely to become more confident when meeting people and holding conversations.  Also, we get hands-on marketing experiences by working on local businesses' social media and website plans.  You get to interact with clients and help them grow their business.  I learned effective marketing techniques and how to interact with clients.
