What is your major and when do you plan on graduating?

My major is Digital Marketing and I plan on graduating April 2020.

What marketing/digital marketing do you enjoy learning about or are very interested in?

With digital marketing it interests me that everything can be done through social media. I would have never thought that opening a business on Instagram can get you so much revenue. It’s also interesting to see people's habits and what they prefer online. That’s what drew me in to fall in love with digital marketing.

How long have you have been a member of the American Marketing Association (AMA)?

I’ve been a member for over a year now and on Executive Board (E-Board) for two semesters.

Why did you originally join the AMA?

I joined AMA because I was fascinated by marketing and was interested in what they had to offer. I heard more about it in my MKT 352 class and was drawn in. I knew that this would be a great learning experience.

What is your position on Executive Board (E-Board), what does it entail, and what do you like most about your position?

I am the Vice President of AMA and it consists of me assisting and overseeing departments alongside the President. What I like about my position is that I learn more about everyone's roles and have a helping hand with the board.

Why do you like AMA and E-Board so much?

I like AMA and and E-Board a lot because of the friends and connections that I have made. I’ve gotten much closer to so many people because of it and I appreciate it!

How has being a member of AMA and E-Board benefited your personal/professional life?

Being a member of AMA and on E-board has benefited me professionally and personally by giving me the opportunity to expand and become a Difference Maker at U of M-Dearborn.

How do you think AMA benefits members and why do you think people should join?

AMA is a great way to network and build connections. People should join because it allows you to build relationships, meet other students, and connect with employers. It’s very useful for the long run and great on your resume.

What do you want to do after graduation (specific job, career, etc.)?

I want to expand my makeup business and use the tools that I’ve gained at AMA and with my classes to build a better brand for myself.
