"I go to school at Menlo College in Atherton, CA. I am a junior in college. My major is in business management / Entrepreneurship. In my spare time, I like to cook and listen to music; preferably at the same time. I also like to write. Lately I have been writing business plans."

Leaders Innovators and Forward Thinkers of Tomorrow

"I am a junior in college and I am interested in online marketing, product branding, communications and its impact on small business development. My interest in the field of marketing started when I was 12 years old. At the time, I was grappling between the fields of fashion design, industrial engineering, or communications. One day, I decided to start reading about business marketing. Once I started learning about marketing, I knew it was the perfect career for me. I plan to help small businesses, companies, startups, and nonprofits enhance their digital marketing."
