BBA in Marketing & Managing People and Organizations, Texas Christian University

 Area(s) of Interest: Music, TV/film, Fine arts, Performing arts, Theatre, Dance, Nonprofit work, PR/Marketing

Experience: One of my most significant extra curricular experiences was being a Managing Frog Camp Director during the summer of 2021. Frog Camp is an extended orientation program at TCU where I got to lead/work alongside 11 of my peers in planning and executing over 10 camps for incoming first year students that summer. Second, I would say that being a part of the Neeley School of Business was a significant experience because I really learned the value of working in teams and being a leader. I was challenged academically and given a lot of guidance in my professional development.

What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern?

What led me to this program was wanting to build a network and find a way to enter the arts & culture realm without having any prior experience or knowledge on how to do so. I also just have a lot of interests and think I could excel in different ways so I thought this program would be a great way to hone in on a particular interest.

What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I’m most excited for the internship experience and being a part of a cohort with people who are both very different from me but also share similar interests and goals.

If you had to describe yourself in three words, they would be…

Reflective, driven, and authentic
